The “who needs a post graduate degree? I can do science… CITIZEN SCIENCE!” badge.


In which we come to terms that good science can also be done by the general public. (NHM)

Please leave some good citizen science links below please.

Here, we’ll start: two in the UK (plants), one in North America (birds), and one that is pretty much worldwide (molecules).

The Big Seaweed Search, NHM
The Urban Tree Survey, NHM
Lots of good stuff at Cornell Lab of Ornithology

  2. Love the badge! Let’s find a way for citizen scientists of all stripes to use it via (we connect citizen scientists to the researchers looking for their help).

  3. When you have a moment, kindly drop me a line so I can learn more about how Science For can offer the badge to our practitioners and volunteers. -Thanks!

  5. While I hope to eventually get a post graduate degree, for the last year I’ve been doing citizen science and (hopefully) citizen science education by blogging on the internet. This badge will be the first of many to grace my blog.

    Thanks guys!

    Who needs a post-graduate degree? I have a bachelor’s degree, in chemistry, and have been doing paid science for over 40 years. I have had occasional fantasies about what I could do with a master’s or doctorate, but never pursued it. Perhaps I should have, since apparently my bachelor’s is insufficient to set me apart from the ranks of interested amateurs, if “post-graduate degree” means master’s or doctorate in your definition.

    I do not have a post graduate degree, and I am paid not only to expiriment, but teach science to kids! And I have a cool lab coat, too ;)
