Abstract

The Accelerating Expansion of the Zooniverse
Education & Outreach
Grant Miller
University of Oxford
The Zooniverse Team (University of Oxford)
A year ago the Zooniverse launched its new platform which allows anyone, from large research groups to individual school pupils, to build their own citizen science project for free, leading to a significant change in the scale and variety of projects on the platform.

I will showcase some of the astrophysics projects that have been build without assistance from the Zooniverse team, describe how we have given our community of volunteers a more involved role in this process, and highlight our future plans for exploiting the educational and outreach advantages of the platform.
