Otago Participatory Science Platform
Learn about participatory science projects that build meaningful collaborations between scientists and the broader community.
Participatory science is a method of undertaking scientific research where community groups and science professionals work together in a meaningful way on locally-relevant scientific research projects. Going beyond scientists crowd-sourcing their data, participatory science builds a true partnership between scientists and the broader community.
The Otago Participatory Science Platform funds participatory science projects every year. Come to the University of Otago Science Expo to meet some of the project teams, learn about their work, get hands-on experience, and get inspired!
