Citizen Science Creative Competition for Pupils
Pupils from all over Austria were able to give free rein to their imagination in the Citizen Science creative Competition. The Center for Citizen Science was looking for avatars, icons and illustrations that would graphically bring a Citizen Science brochure to life. The brochure contains important recommendations for cooperation between schools and science. Entries could be submitted until March 15, 2021. The winners will be notified in April 2021.
The working group "Citizen Science at/with schools" is currently developing recommendations for successful collaboration in citizen science projects. The collected know-how is soon to be published in a handy brochure. This will make the information more easily accessible and more clearly presented for researchers, teachers and also interested schoolchildren. To put the finishing touches to the brochure, children and young people were invited to help with the design.
What was the task? Who could participate?
The brochure will consist of several chapters that will contain descriptions, literature references, tips and much more to enable successful planning and implementation of Citizen Science projects at and with schools. Pupils of all school levels and types, whether individually or as a school class, were invited to submit their ideas and designs. In total, there were three categories to choose from:
