The LacOscope project proposes to involve a large number of people (non-expert general public) in the participatory production of images of plankton in Alpine lakes. A portable and low cost microscopy platform (©PlanktoScope) implemented by students, entrusted to scientific mediators, will allow the monitoring of plankton dynamics as an indicator of global and climate changes.

The active participation of citizens as data collectors for the ecology of alpine plankton will allow, in addition to raising awareness of climate change, a presentation of the work produced by an interdisciplinary team of students.
