The purpose of the Open Citizens' Day is for the public to actively participate in citizen science projects, trying out different types of projects, and be able to meet and talk to the researchers behind the projects. Citizen science projects from Denmark, and beyond, within any scientific discipline are invited to participate, showcase their projects, and directly engage the visiting public in their citizen science projects. We have now closed for projects to attend, thank you to the projects who applied to attend.
There will be some set activities at certain times throughout the day, organised by the participating citizen science projects, e.g., water sampling as part of the ‘Søer i Fritiden’ citizen science project; and talks by scientists leading citizen science projects.
The Open Citizen’s Day will take place on Sunday 24th of April 2022 at the Steno Museum, part of the Science Museums, and adjacent outdoor areas at the Aarhus University campus in Aarhus. Participating citizen science projects will be placed either among existing exhibitions where themes overlap, in the foyer, or in outdoor areas as relevant. The Open Citizens’ Day is part of and supported by the Danish Science Festival and leads up to the Engaging Citizen Science Conference 2022 the following two days.
Everyone is welcome to visit the Steno Museum, C.F. Møllers Allé 2, 8000 Aarhus C (within the Aarhus University campus) between 11am and 4pm on this Sunday, where entrance will be free.
