Citizen Science and Zooniverse at the Adler Planetarium. Here, There, and Everywhere In 2007, the Adler Planetarium and the UK’s Oxford University founded Zooniverse—the world’s largest and most successful platform for people-powered research.
With more than two million registered users around the world, Zooniverse connects everyday citizens with researchers to help classify galaxies, find new planets, explore the surface of the moon, and complete dozens of original projects in astronomy, biology, science, and the humanities. Thanks to the Adler’s Citizen Science department, science teams are able to analyze large data sets with a high level of accuracy in a matter of weeks or months (that would otherwise take over 100 years!) With the help of a worldwide network of volunteers. The Adler Planetarium is grateful to the Alfred P. Learn More about Our History Anyone Can Be a Citizen Scientist—Even You! At the Adler, we love to remind people that science is not just what we know—it’s how we discover what we know. There’s a Zooniverse Project For That. Zooniverse.

The printers are part of a newly announced partnership between the Challenger Center and printer maker New Matter. Students at Cosmic Kids Camp had a chance to use the Mod-T printer on Tuesday during a lesson about force, motion and coding using ozobots. “They chase lines and different patterns make them do different things,” said a student named John. “It’s pretty much like melting plastic into what you want to make, and it’s really cool to watch,” said a student named Alessandra. The students will get the chance to print pieces representing the solar system and a Texas pinhole viewer, which will show the path of this summer’s solar eclipse.
“As we go on these deep space missions, there's no way to bring all the spare parts and all the supplies you need. At $300 apiece, the printers are affordable enough for schools to purchase.
