Tadaam! 🎉 The long awaited Stall Catchers Catchathon is BACK! Right in time to celebrate Citizen Science Month :)
Catchathon is a catching marathon of the Stall Catchers citizen science game. Anyone can hold one in their local pub, school, library, hackerspace or anywhere else! (Although it's gotta be fully online these days..!)
We really missed big Stall Catchers competitions - and that amazing feeling when people from all around the world join together at the same time to do something about stopping Alzheimer's! Did you miss catchathons too?! :)
This year we are holding the Catchathon during the Citizen Science Month. The event will take place:
17:00GMT (1pm ET) April 28 - 17:00GMT (1pm ET) April 29
With kick off and final hour hangouts LIVE on Zoom!
