What is citizen science? In case it helps, we’re defining citizen science as

“the practice of public participation and collaboration in scientific research to increase scientific knowledge.” http://education.nationalgeographic.org/encyclopedia/citizen-science/

or

“projects in which volunteers partner with scientists to answer real-world questions." http://www.birds.cornell.edu/citscitoolkit/about/definition
