Citizen Science is back for the month of August! Caroline Nickerson from the SciStarter.org will introduce "Crowd the Tap" a Citizen Science project that kicks off a month of CS that focuses on the importance of our fresh water in Kenosha.
Crowd the Tap is an EPA crowd sourced data collection project. This is the first project to engage and empower water consumers with investigating drinking water pipe infrastructure. You will learn how to investigate pipes and submit data to help promote safe drinking water. All participants can pick up a packet at the library with the "tools" needed to check and report pipe data plus you will receive a WaterInsights fresh water test strip. This project is appropriate for school age - Adult and/or families.
Presenter, Caroline Nickerson, is a Master of Public Policy student at American University with a focus on environmental and climate change policy. She is also passionate about Citizen Science!
