Celebrate Citizen Science. We've come up with a list of suggestions for participating in citizen science anytime of year.
Collect data! Citizen scientists collect data on things like weather, air quality, and radiation to plot data points at different locations and times. Crowd sourced data can be very powerful and effective for research gains.
Be on the look out for ways to volunteer. You can also learn a lot about nature and the environment by joining a clean up litter or environmental disasters.
Brush up on science learning: read this article about how to read and get the most out of scientific articles so that you can stay up to date on science news.
Go to a conference, fair, or festival! Collaborating with other scientists is a great way to practice citizen science. Find citizen science events here.
