SciStarter 2.0: Citizen Science

SciStarter 2.0 is a place to find, join, and contribute to science through more than 1600 formal and informal projects and events. SciStarter's Mission Statement is to enable and encourage people to learn about, participate in, and contribute to science through informal recreational activities and formal research efforts; inspire greater appreciation and promote a better understanding of science and technology among the general public; create a shared space where scientists can talk with citizens interested in working on or learning about their research projects; and satisfy the popular urge to tinker, build, and explore by making it simple and fun for people - singles, parents, grandparents, kids - to jump in and get their hands dirty with science.
