Science Identity and Agency in Community and Citizen Science: Evidence & Potential


"In recent years, there has been an explosion of interest in and opportunities for crowd-enabled and participatory community and citizen science (CCS) initiatives worldwide (Bonney et al. 2014; Theobald et al. 2013). With this interest has come a growing body of research about ways participation in CSS might support science learning for adults and youth (Bonney et al. 2015; Ballard et al. 2017; Brossard, Lewenstein & Bonney, 2005; Bonney et al. 2009; Houseal et al. 2014; Wals et al. 2014). In this paper, we synthesize the potential and evidence for science learning through CCS from a perspective of identity and agency."
