Project science lead Kate Jones explains why Bat Detective is awesome at the launch of British Science Week


Last night I was in London at the launch event for British Science Week. This year we have joined with the British Science Association to promote Bat Detective during science week. We have set up a challenge to see if we can get more than 100,000 new classifications of potential bat calls.
