This week on SciStarter LIVE! let’s play a game to aid science! With Jill Townley, Eterna player-developer, we’ll dive into how solving puzzles with citizen science project Eterna can help fight diseases. Eterna is a global online science game that engages users to solve puzzles related to the folding of RNA molecules and allows players around the world to participate in cutting-edge RNA research. This event is a part of the Citizen Science Goes Back to School series and is ideal for educators and students in grades 9-12. SciStarter LIVE! is a weekly event where you can join us on Zoom or watch the live stream on SciStarter’s Facebook page as we work through a citizen science project together. We’ll demonstrate the project and answer your questions. If you register, we will email you a link to the recording. Before the event, be sure to sign up for a SciStarter account at if you haven't already, and have a look at the featured project. Eterna:
