Citizen Science Project – Science Gossip

Cover of Recreative Science, 19th Century periodical
Do you love nature? enjoy getting involved in citizen science projects from the comfort of your own home? Then get involved with Science Gossip and help them discover more about your 19th century science predecessors.

In the Victorian period, just like today, scientists and members of the public worked together to further scientific discovery. Before computers and cameras they had to draw what they saw. Their drawings are locked away in the pages of Victorian periodicals, such as Science Gossip, Recreative Science and The Intellectual Observer. Help them to classify their drawings and map the origins of citizen science.
