Welcome to MPM’s DataBlitz!

The DataBlitz is an event where you, the museum visitor, get to help us by transcribing scientific data from our collections. Like MPM's BioBlitzes, we want to see how many natural history specimen records can be transcribed in a single day. Unlike the BioBlitz, however, where the public comes to see scientists in action, we are inviting you to do the action!

This event will take place on Saturday, October 22, 2016 from 11:00am-3:00pm.

To learn more about crowdsource transcription, visit DigiVol:

Click on "Get Involved" to volunteer. Once you've registered, you can search for Milwaukee Public Museum to join our transcription expeditions!

Want free admission to the museum?

Every volunteer who participates in the DataBlitz for 60 minutes or more will receive a free admission wristband to the museum! If you are interested, please sign up for a time slot so we can ensure a computer is available for you.

The DataBlitz will be held in "Ed Lab 2," located next to the gift shop, under the main staircase on the ground floor--go through a set of double doors past the student lockers. Directions will also be posted on signs outside the gift shop.
