Methods



The word "method" has different meanings in different spheres, at Public Lab we use it to mean any technique, approach, or set of techniques to achieve something. You can see a selection of them at the Methods page, or post a new one using the instructions here:

  • Questions and a prompt to add your own
  • Activities to guide people to how to begin using or contributing to the project
