  20. 3 models for public participation in science: • Contributory projects, which are generally designed by scientists and for which members of the public primarily contribute data • Collaborative projects, which are generally designed by scientists and for which members of the public contribute data but also may help to refine project design, analyze data, or disseminate findings • Co-created projects, which are designed by scientists and members of the public working together and for which at least some of the public participants are actively involved in most or all steps of the scientific process.
