Citizen Science

The mission of the Bard Citizen Science program is to ensure all of our students have developed a greater sense of agency with respect to their ability to ask and answer scientific questions and analyze scientific claims. Students will develop this sense as they deepen their scientific literacy through our curriculum based in authentic, scientific inquiry and public outreach. The curriculum asks students to conduct laboratory experiments, analyze published scientific literature, and engage deeply with the mosaic of information that is the nature of science. With this stronger scientific grounding, the Bard students will be better prepared to engage in the broader scientific discussions and issues that face our world.  

The 2018 Citizen Science program will explore the question “What role does the human microbiome play in healthy bodies and societies?”. This curriculum was developed by members of the Bard Science Faculty.
