nQuire workshop with the BBC, Met Office and community organisations

As part of the project “EDUcating Citizens and organisations in Citizen Science methodologies” (EduCS) funded by UKRI, we held the first workshop with community organisations, the MetOffice and the BBC about identifying personally meaningful citizen science investigations related to weather such as climate change and heatwaves. Twenty five people attended the workshop in person on the 30th Jan 2020 at the Open University. Discussions focused in particular on how to ensure weather data quality that can inform national initiatives (e.g. complement MetOffice data) as well as how to devise citizen science projects with the dual objective of educating citizens and contributing original data to science initiatives. At least one of the proposed projects will be designed and shared via the nQuire platform (inquire.org.uk) in March 2020.
