This poster was presented at the 2021 NSF AISL Awardee Meeting.
The project's goals are to:
- Create “data-catcher” exhibits that provide exciting learning experiences about cooperation while allowing visitors to contribute to research in social science.
- Build public awareness of the methods of social science.
- Generate valid data for academic research.
- Assess the impact of public participation in scientific research (PPSR) on visitors’ interest, engagement, and understanding.
