Did you know that you can turn your curiosity into impact simply by sharing observations of nature or playing online games to help scientists answer questions they cannot answer with you? Find awesome projects that help advance research in human and environmental health at SciStarter.org/NLM.

Bonus! These upcoming online events will help you get started in some of our favorite projects and they feature the scientists you’ll be helping!

A scientist who needs your help will join us online to talk about his/her research and provide step-by-step instructions to join the project regardless of your location or background! Spend one week participating in the project at your leisure. Then, join us online to discuss results and share feedback with the scientist. You can send any questions to SciStarter (info@SciStarter.org) throughout the week or chat about them during the online events (on Zoom).  Next, participate in Stall Catchers anytime you can.
