About SciStarter

SciStarter is the place to find, join, and contribute to science through more than 1600 formal and informal research projects and events. Our database of citizen science projects enables discovery, organization, and greater participation in citizen science. Learn more about citizen science and check out these Ten Principles of Citizen Science.

With support from the National Science Foundation, Arizona State University's Center for Engagement and Training in Science and Society and SciStarter are creating SciStarter 2.0 (coming soon):

- An identity management system and open integrated registration for participants to more easily engage in multiple citizen science projects, even across platforms and disciplines - GIS implementation so would-be participants can find opportunities near them - Ability for participants to track their projects, participation, and contributions to science - Participants can create privacy-protected profiles and find people and projects of interest to them

If you are a scientist or a representative of a citizen science organization or community: SciStarter is the organization and community to tell eager people about your work and get them interested in helping out. Make sure your project is listed and up to date so we can help you. Thanks to support from the Simons Foundation, we share the database with anyone interested through global partnerships, media partnerships and open APIs with PBS Kids, Discover Magazine, and others.

If you would like to promote SciStarter as citizen science resource during presentations, we have created two slides that explain the site. One is geared toward citizen scientists (download here) and the other for project managers (download here).

Our Mission

SciStarter will bring together the millions of citizen scientists in the world; the thousands of potential projects offered by researchers, organizations, and companies; and the resources, products, and services that enable citizens to pursue and enjoy these activities. We aim to:

- Enable and encourage people to learn about, participate in, and contribute to science through both informal recreational activities and formal research efforts. - Inspire greater appreciation and promote a better understanding of science and technology among the general public. - Create a shared space where scientists can talk with citizens interested in working on or learning about their research projects. - Satisfy the popular urge to tinker, build, and explore by making it simple and fun for people—singles, parents, grandparents, kids—to jump in and get their hands dirty with science.



Scistarter es un lugar para encontrar, compartir y contribuir a la ciencia mediante actividades recreativas y proyectos de investigación. La base de datos de proyectos permite el descubrimiento, organización y mayor participación en la ciencia ciudadana.

La plataforma sirve además para dar a conocer proyectos que están siendo realizados, y al darlos a conocer obtener ayuda de la comunidad voluntaria para llevarlos a cabo; los proyectos también pueden ser postulados por otros y ser incluidos en el Project finder.

El proyecto fue fundado por Darlene Cavalier, respondiendo a la carencia de participación de la gente en actividades especializadas.

Entre sus objetivos se encuentran el alentar a la participación en esfuerzos de investigación formales e informales, inspirar una mayor apreciación y promover un mejor entendimiento de la ciencia y la tecnología en el público general, creando un espacio compartido donde los ciudadanos puedan hablar con científicos y trabajar o aprender de los proyectos.

Scistarter tiene un buscador de proyectos donde se pueden encontrar varias categorías como: proyectos de bajo costo, solo para estudiantes, aptos para niños, hazlo tu mismo, proyectos para exteriores y recursos para profesores. Se puede buscar por temas de interés como animales, astronomía Biología, comida, educación, psicología, computadoras y tecnología; también por ubicación geográfica.
