Learn how YOU can turn your curiosity into impact with citizen science. To meet today’s local to global challenges, science needs more eyes, ears, and perspectives than the number of current scientists possess. Enter citizen science: a collaboration between scientists and people who are curious, who are concerned and motivated to make a difference. There are citizen science projects spanning every scientific discipline, from health to the environment. People just like you are documenting light pollution, collecting data about plants and animals worldwide, accelerating Alzheimer's research by playing an online game, and helping create vaccines to fight COVID-19. With citizen science, anyone of any age can move the world forward. Join SciStarter and the St. Charles Public Library (St. Charles, Illinois) for an Introduction to Citizen Science and to explore the citizen science projects on the library's SciStarter list.
