Trumbull, Deborah J.; Bonney, Rick; Bascom, Derek; Cabral, Anna
Science Education, v84 n2 p265-75 Mar 2000
Examines letters written by more than 700 participants in a citizen-science project conducted by the Cornell Laboratory of Ornithology. Finds that nearly eighty percent of the letters, which were unsolicited and not connected with a formal evaluation, revealed that participants had engaged in thinking processes similar to those that are part of science investigations.
