Outcomes

In March, 2018, Lysin American School in Switzerland (LAS) hosted a 2.5-day workshop on the Synergies between Education and Citizen Science. The workshop was co-organised by the both the ECSA and COST Education & Learning Working Groups, and was funded by COST Action (European Cooperation in Science and Technology).

The Speaker’s presentations, Workshops, Videos, and other materials produced during the event can be found on the LAS website here. Additionally, the videos are all on YouTube in our COST workshop channel.
