Learn about how you can make a difference in the world of scientific research. Citizen science is an effort that enables people from all walks of life to do just that through volunteering to contribute data to or analyze data for global research projects.
Using the SciStarter website, you can find projects that match your interests and explore the world of science and nature while helping our scientific community. Do it on your timetable, whenever you can, wherever you can. Spend as much or as little time as you want. Citizen science is fun on your own, in groups, and even with your grandchildren!
On Wednesday, January 27th at 3pm ET, SciStarter Program Manager Caroline Nickerson will host a Zoom webinar in partnership with 4 Seasons, a community in New Jersey, to introduce citizen science. Anyone, anywhere in the world is welcome to attend.
The featured projects for the webinar include Stall Catchers (https://scistarter.org/stall-catchers-by-eyesonalz), Nature’s Notebook (https://scistarter.org/natures-notebook), and The Great Sunflower Project (https://scistarter.org/the-great-sunflower-project).
The founder of SciStarter, Darlene Cavalier, is a professor at Arizona State University. She is also the daughter-in-law of 4 Seasons residents Bonnie and Ron Cavalier.
