8 Sep , 2015  

SciStarter is the place to find, join, and contribute to science through recreational activities and citizen science research projects. Its database of citizen science projects enable discovery, organization, and greater participation in citizen science. SciStarter is a organization and community to tell eager people about your work and get them interested in helping out.

Their Mission

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. It aims to:

  • Enable and encourage people to learn about, participate in, and contribute to science through both 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
  • 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.
