“Citizen science is science in which the public, be they 8 or 80, engages in the process of doing science, science that contributes to our collective body of knowledge and is both novel and can be built upon.

Most hands-on science in classrooms is not citizen science in as much as the results obtained in the classroom do not become part of our collective understanding of the universe.  In other words, citizen science is only complete if it is both novel and published.”
