This is a free course that benefits from access to the lessons learned from COMPASS, a citizen science project funded by the Spanish Government and aimed to evaluate the usability of a mobile health (mHealth) intervention in a primary school setting. No prior knowledge in science reporting is needed for this course.

By the end of this course, the learner will be able to:

  • Recognize the key stages of a citizen science project and the required adaptation to the particular circumstances of a primary or secondary school
  • Understand and learn how to build community before planning a citizen science project
  • Plan the systematic procedure of data collection and the process of analysis and interpretation of information gathered in the classroom context 
  • Highlight the evaluation of citizen science projects, once finished, as a tool to improve the processes and outcomes.
