Citizen Science Day Wikipedia Edit-a-Thon

Sunday, April 14 at 12:30pm to 3:00pm

Science Library, Computer lab
119 Woodland Street, Oberlin, OH 44074

Celebrate Citizen Science Day by adding needed references to science-related articles in Wikipedia. Participants will gain experience in evaluating Wikipedia articles for completeness, accuracy, and bias as they review articles with [citation needed] tags, and search for reliable sources to confirm or clarify unsupported statements.

Accurate communication of scientific research findings is an essential component of the scientific method; participation in this process of documentation is one way we can all be citizen scientists.

Snacks & beverages provided; fun for all!  RSVP (needed for space planning) by email to aricker@oberlin.edu.
