NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC: CITIZEN SCIENCE

Time: 14:00 – 17:00
Venue: Appleton Tower, Theatre 5, Crichton Street, EH8
It’s a new age of exploration at National Geographic, with the opportunity to engage the public directly in the discoveries once only possible by teams in the field. Led by some of the world’s top explorers, virtual exploration and conservation are becoming possible through advanced crowd sourcing platforms and citizen science experiences.
From the Human Genographic Project to the hunt for Ghengis Khan’s tomb, National Geographic has been at the forefront of Citizen Science. Digital technology now allows the public to become involved in solving some of the greatest scientific problems and for this incredible showcase we have managed to bring together some of the world’s leading figures in the field.
