This experimental interactive poster on citizen science was created in a "citizen"-ish way. It is the "Mommy style" poster created by a Mother hoping to show with the poster that "Citizen Scientists" have more to offer than simply acting as "worker bees" to generate data for the "Professional Scientists." Instead, the poster suggests that the future should involve Citizens all throughout the research process as valued partners. Such open collaboration will lead to advancements, new perspectives, and cross-disciplinary efforts that would otherwise be missed.
