A little while ago, BBC reported on the origin of citizen science projects, particularly THIS SUPERCOOL PROJECT.
Have a look at the some of the most interesting citizen science projects around in:
Neuroscience: Solving one of the toughest mysteries of the brain…How we see what we see
Cancer Research: A Cancer Research UK initiative that involves analysing real data to help find a cure for cancer
Molecular biology: Make Molecules, Advance Science. Can’t say more in a tag line. There’s also one on designing new molecules.
Climate Change: This study helped scientists figure out why the UK faced such destructive floods last winter
Monitoring Biodiversity: The British Museum of Natural History and the UK Enviroment Observation Foundation have lots of projects for nature lovers.
