Today, we can map the genome of any species and measure particles that make up all matter in the universe. We’re constantly innovating across all areas of science. We’ve reached a point in time where anyone can contribute to this progress, no matter their occupation or global location, without needing a degree. By becoming a citizen scientist you can have a hand in the next big discovery and learn things you never would’ve imagined.
Make sure to pick a project that fits your schedule so you can be a dependable participant for its duration. And above all else, have fun with it! You may not be a traditional scientist, but that doesn’t mean you can’t make an impactful contribution.
