In April 2017, VIATIC began working with Parenting Science Gang, a new collaborative citizen science project, funded by the Wellcome Trust to work with parents on a number of topics relating to parenting and children. Following on from the very successful Nappy Science Gang, the project is in it’s early stages, with the team working with a variety of groups to define user-led experiments that will examine different aspects of parenting. This provides some unique opportunities both to access data that is previously unavailable, but also to actively involve a broad range of the general public in scientific research projects, where they play an active (and crucial!) role.
Tamasin is leading the work from our side as part of the core project team to develop the proposals and deliver the projects. Watch this space for updates!
