1000001 Labs @ ASU Citizen Science and Maker Summit 2016

The Arizona State University (ASU) Citizen Science and Maker Summit 2016  is an event hosted by ASU designed to explore the crossroads of citizen science, the maker movement and higher education. The summit is scheduled for October 26, 27 & 28, 2016 for downtown Chandler, Arizona at the ASU Chandler Innovation Center.

1000001 Labs participates in two related events:

1) Citizen Science Tools Database/Meta Data Workshop
2) Citizen Science and Maker Summit

The ASU Citizen Science Maker Summit 2016 will facilitate the sharing of best practices and help jump-start opportunities for the citizen science and making communities to learn from each other. The event will include a combination of breakout sessions, skill-building workshops and networking events, as well as multiple keynote speakers.



Summit highlights:

Explore best practices between makers and citizen scientists and learn how these two communities can benefit from each other.
