Description Scistarter is a website that indexes citizen science projects from across the web. You can create an account and add a project by completing a rich form. Thereby the project will be connected to the community (project of the day,news letters showing new project etc..) Purpose According to Scistarter's team :

  • 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.
