Citizen science is a form of crowdsouring allows volunteers to participate in scientific data collection and analysis. 


Advances in immersive virtual reality (VR) have created opportunities to recreate physical environments with minimal cost, making it possible to train citizen scientists to make qualitative experiential judgments usually reserved for domain experts.

This research trains citizen scientists to assess outdoor stream habitats using StreamBED VR, a multisensory VR training platform.
