Citizen Exploration – Makers, Discovery and Science with Mac Cowell
Mac Cowell, Founder of Genefoo at MakerCon 2014. Makers are the new explorers of the universe. As maker tools continue to improve and more people get involved with the maker movement, the opportunity is growing for citizen explorers to contribute to science and discovery. This workshop will explore new exploration technologies, mechanisms to encourage interaction between citizen explorers and the science community, questions of data standards and archiving, the regulatory environment, and ethical concerns, among others.
