Involving schools in tracking flu symptoms: Flusurvey and National Science & Engineering Week

A session at Citizen Cyberscience Summit 2014

Friday 21st February, 2014

11:20am to 11:40am (GMT)

*This talk is part of the LEARNING IN FORMAL AND INFORMAL ENVIRONMENTS track*

Flusurvey has joined forces with the British Science Association’s National Science & Engineering Week campaign to get more people submitting symptom data to help researchers understand flu. It’s been a big challenge to get school groups involved: find out what’s worked and the barriers that we think still need to be overcome.
