The Crowd & The Cloud, live at the U.S. Science & Engineering Festival

You are invited!

C&CThe Crowd & The Cloud, a public television series about citizen science, crowdsourcing and mobile tech, will be live at the U.S. Science & Engineering Festival this weekend to help celebrate Citizen Science Day (Sat., April 16th) in two important ways, both of which we invite you to participate in and share:

1. Throughout the Festival, C&C will be reporting live from the event floor via social media. Their goal is to visit every citizen science-related project at the show, and share something about them with you, online — and on the social media wall at our SciStarter booth. On Saturday, you are invited to share a social post (or posts) about your own citizen science project, in words and ideally images as well.

Just use the hashtag #CrowdCloudLive on Twitter, Periscope or Instagram (SciStarter editor’s note: also use #MyCitSci so we can share your stories in May!)

Together, we hope to celebrate hundreds of CS projects from around the world.

2. At 1pm EST/10am PST on Saturday, C&C is hosting a live Google Hangout on Air with an all-star lineup of CS experts and project leaders. Watch the live stream on YouTube:

During the Hangout, you can ask questions by using the hashtag #CrowdCloudLive.

Join us for a very special weekend of citizen science activities and social sharing. You can learn more about The Crowd & The Cloud by visiting their website.

Kind regards,

The C&C Team
