Citizen Science

Citizen Science projects tend to fit into two major categories – data gatherers and data analyzers. In both, projects often teach special skills needed to participate, and include educational engagement. There is something for everyone – whether you are interested in discovering new planets, protein structures, animal, plant and bird conservation, preserving the ocean and its flora and fauna, discovering patterns in human disease data, contributing to accurate policing data, or finding new ways to tackle climate change. A great place to begin is Scistarter (https://scistarter.org/citizen-science). In addition to that, below are some of my favorites
