Citizen Science on The Couch

I was recently invited to appear on the TV show – The Couch, as Marnie Giroud’s guest on her Wild Things segment.

Filmed in the School of Isolated and Distance Education studios in Leederville (scene of the recent MicroBlitz launch), this seven-minute segment covered the role of citizen science, the Australian Citizen Science Association in WA, and exemplified its value with a quick overview of the MicroBlitz project for which Gaia Resources has been the technology partner over the last four years.

If you’d like to know more about how we can help you with developing a citizen science program, or how a smartphone app could improve your community engagement and scientific data capture, then please leave a comment below – or email me directly via alex.chapman@gaiaresources.com.au.

PS. You can also watch Piers’ discussing the application of smartphone technologies to citizen science in Marnie’s June 8 2014 show:
