Citizen Science Goes Mainstream

SciStarter is a new project by Darlene Cavalier (Founder of Science Cheerleaders) that connects science enthusiasts with projects they can do to make a real difference. Think of it as a Kickstarter for citizen science connecting regular people to real science they can do. SciStarter brings together the millions of citizen scientists in the world; the thousands of projects offered by researchers, organizations, and companies; and the resources, products, and services that enable people to pursue and enjoy these activities.

Best of all, you get to have a blast while helping with research. There are even big prizes to win like $10K for finding the most defibrullators in Philly. PARTY RESEARCH ON!
