The 2017 Curriculum
In 2017, Citizen Science will focus on infectious diseases—what they are, how they're transmitted, where they are most prevalent and why, and what we can do to reduce the global burden of disease. But Citizen Science is about much more than just a topic. Students in Citizen Science will do science the way scientists do. They will design and conduct experiments in the laboratory, explore the use of models to test assumptions and make predictions, and find patterns in data by exploring correlations.
