SciStarter will bring together the millions of citizen scientists in the world; the thousands of potential projects offered by researchers, organizations, and companies; and the resources, products, and services that enable citizens to pursue and enjoy these activities.
Everyone is invited to help for science to act like a scientist. SciStarter connects millions of science and nature enthusiasts to real research projects they can do. There are thousands of existing “citizen-science” projects created by academics, community groups, and non-profits that need the help of volunteers. Such activities range from tracking the effect of climate change on butterfly migration to analyzing galaxies.
To get more information about the „object of insterst“ it is necessary to do some studies. Count something, get information all over the world or wait for a special moment. All these little actions take time (= money). SciStarter offers a big number of people who want (and can) help you at your project. You can also science on other projects too 😉
With a little help from the citizen scientists 🙂
