Citizen science projects

Citizen science allows members of the public without specialist scientific training to engage with scientific research.

In the School of Psychology we have carried out a number of citizen science collaborations with the University of the Third Age (U3A), an organisation that brings together retired and semi-retired people to enjoy new experiences and gain new knowledge for fun. This has provided participants and research assistants for our studies and given U3A members the opportunity to learn about our research at first hand.
