Join WXXI as we continue to be citizen scientists and observe our community through a special ongoing WXXI Community Observation Challenge!

WXXI Education and our partners hosted a special virtual Community Summit on Sesame Street in Communities and their set of tools around Health Emergencies. This is the archive of the panel discussion and follow-up resources from the event. 

Citizen science typically refers to research collaborations between scientists and volunteers, particularly (but not exclusively) to expand opportunities for scientific data collection and to provide access to scientific information for community members.
