Citizen Science has the potential to reduce barriers between science and society by enabling citizens to actively participate in authentic scientific research. The project CitSciID investigates how participating multiple times in Citizen Science may foster science identity development of students and teachers. Building on teachers’ experience with Citizen Science, we collaboratively develop a workshop and teaching materials to support the implementation of Citizen Science in schools. Similar modules will be developed to cover Citizen Science as a topic in teacher education at university as well as during the initial teacher training phase.
