The classification challenge that we ran on Worm Watch Lab with the help of the British Science Association during British Science Week last month was an overwhelming success. After smashing through the initial target of 100,000 classifications in the first few days, our volunteers ended up contributing more than double that figure in only 14 days. That corresponds to over one third of the entire dataset in the project.
