Citizens' science for their community

The Water Next Time: Professor Who Helped Expose Crisis in Flint talks about the problem of the academic system and the virtues of citizen science:

"It’s a natural byproduct of science conducted as a public good. Normal people really appreciate good science that’s done in their interest. They stepped forward as citizen scientists to explore what was happening to them and to their community, we provided some funding and the technical and analytical expertise, and they did all the work. I think that work speaks for itself."
