Citizen Science Connected Blog

SciStarter is the place to find, join, and contribute to science through providing people access to more than 2700 searchable formal and informal research projects and events. But more than just a project directory, SciStarter also offers a coordinated place to record contributions and access the tools and instruments needed to participate in citizen science projects. The Citizen Science Connected Blog is published by Science Connected in partnership with SciStarter.
