Saving the Planet with Crowdsourcing

April 13 @ 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Event Navigation

Event run by TechGirlz. Please email Donna Cusimano with any questions. Thank you!

Crowdsourcing is a growing phenomenon, allowing people from all over the world to participate and work together towards a common goal. Wikipedia, Lego Ideas, marking up satellite images, or transcribing historic diaries are just a few examples.

In honor of Earth Day, TechGirlz will be participating in the Penguin Watch Program. Students will locate Penguins in aerial photos in a crowdsourcing effort to track penguins to better understand changes in penguin populations. Crowdsourcing provides the opportunity for students to help scientists analyze the extensive photographic data that has been collected. Be part of the mission. This workshop will take place during the Women in Tech Summit.

Note: Please bring a laptop.
