What is Citizen Science?
Citizen Science is ordinary people of any age gathering scientific information locally and sharing it with the global scientific community. Whether you are participating in star finding, birdwatching, sharing pictures from your backyard to help track plant and species populations, or taking a walk in your neighborhood with an air monitor, you can contribute! Citizen Science is perfect for all ages and great for family activities.
Our Citizen Science Kits contain everything you need to help scientists answer questions they can't answer without volunteers like you!
