Get involved in prehistoric research
Getting involved in Citizen Science projects can range from collecting data for just a short period to dedicating much of your free time to longer-term projects. No academic education is required, but it is important that you are prepared to learn about and respect scientific standards (we will be happy to teach you what you need to know). Citizen Science takes place both in the museum and via online platforms.

Participating in collection work at the museum

Citizen Scientists can work directly in the museum on various collections and make a valuable contribution to the scientific process.
