You like science.
You consider yourself a scientist at heart.
You feel the planets would be in line if all the people in the world were out there, doing something, about SCIENCE!
SciStarter is for you!
It houses a database of citizen science projects that are easy to approach, easy to attain, and draw you right in on the scientific level! Students, teachers, scientists, and more can all be at the same place at the same time! You can go right in and find projects that might be suited for you, your students, and all of a sudden.... you are there, making a difference!!
And sometimes you get there by way of a little F-U-N!
If you are looking for some fun AND scientific projects to do with your students, then Citizen Scientist is the way to go. Once you are in on the website, it's only a matter of clicking along the parameters, and you are knee deep in a project you want to be in! And you are making scientific news, collecting data as you go! Search projects by free/low cost, featured projects, projects suitable for students or children, projects you can do by outdoors, do--it-yourself projects, or ones where it list available teaching materials.
