Presenters: Jessie L. Oliver, Philipp Hummer

Technologies are central to citizen science, from interfaces of applications that collect and analyze data, to platform infrastructures. The design of such technologies influences how people participate and what they do. We will share an approach to illuminate opportunities, challenges, and practical considerations. First, we will discuss how design research can lead to fun and useful insights, highlighting lessons learned from investigating how to design enticing citizen science technologies to support wildlife conservation. Then, we will delve into the practice of designing and developing citizen science technologies, exemplifying the process through a live demonstration of a growing cooperative app platform.
