The proliferation of mobile devices and low-cost sensors has enabled citizens to collect timely geospatial information and contribute to scientific research and fieldwork that addresses locally relevant, global environmental issues, including disaster management, food security, and climate change. This collaborative exchange, in which citizens as well as scientists and policymakers, actively participate in the creation of new scientific knowledge, is called citizen science to contribute, together with scientists and policymakers, to address locally relevant, global environmental issues, including disaster management, food security, and climate change. This collaborative exchange, in which citizens are active participants in the co-creation of new scientific knowledge, is known as Citizen Science. If you missed the citizen science workshop or want to review the content that was presented there, SWF has posted the workshop agenda, video and links to the slides of presenters.

Earning a college degree takes more than time and effort—it requires a significant financial investment. According to a report from Thrivent Mutual Funds highlighted in a recent edition of Forbes magazine, choosing a major that can translate into a data science career is one way to ensure that your career earning power will allow you to pay off those student loans quickly. Is an understanding of data, how to use it, manage it, and act on it, the newest foundational skill essential for career success in the 21st century? Probably so. It can also help you with very practical concerns, for example interpreting the automatic diagnostics that are done daily on your new car so you can figure out a better route to work and improve your gas mileage. How to afford that fancy data-driven car? A data science education that opens up many well-paying career opportunities is a good place to start. View post for the full report.
