The online people-powered research platform Zooniverse recently developed a project builder to allow anyone to create an online transcription, classification, or crowdsourcing project. This allows large data sets to be analyzed and discussed by a community of volunteers attracted to work done at the institution. In this session, we will present how Adler Planetarium and other institutions have used the Zooniverse Project Builder to engage their visitors and people around in the world in their research and collections.
