The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County has brought crowdsourcing into the realm of science. Their Community Science Program allows the public to contribute to research projects and become active participants in the study of nature. Three program managers—Lila Higgins, Richard Smart, and Miguel Ordeñana—met with Jason to discuss the history of the program and its positive impacts on the community and scientific research.
