Earth, Space, and Life Science
Volunteers are asked to find any plant (like a sunflower), observe it for five or more minutes, record all pollinators (like bees or butterflies) that visit, and report the data online.
ECLIPSE Soundscapes: Citizen Scientists help collect and analyze sound data during the upcoming solar eclipses.
The ISeeChange project is a global community that documents local changes in environment, weather, and climate. Each post is synced with weather and climate data, which is broadcast to the community to investigate bigger picture climate trends.
Light pollution not only affects our view of the stars, but it also wastes energy and money, causes sleep disorders in people, and disrupts the sleeping and breeding habits of animals. Raise awareness about light pollution by measuring the night sky brightness.
Design and study complex RNA molecules to help scientists develop RNA-based medicines to combat global diseases.
Provides NASA Earth assests, including GLOBE Observer- an app enabling all to contribute ground observations to NASA Earth Science.
Students conduct a series of plant experiments similar to the experiments on the International Space Station.
Provides GLOBE opportunities to participate in data collection and the scientific process, through activities and investigations about environmental science.
Do GLOBE, Do Science! Engage students with data collection for different projects involving the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere, and pedosphere.
While learning about plants grown on the ISS, students plant their own gardens with space-flown seeds and analyze the results.
Code HD is a free program at Emory University to introduce middle school students to the intersection of health and technology. Join us each year in partnership with the Atlanta Science Festival for our Health Hackathon where students learn to code and develop their own health focused app!
People who suffer from pollen allergies use pollen count information to decide when it is better to stay indoors. Research scientists and allergists can also use pollen count information to better understand trends in pollen production and conditions.
Emory Air Quality (Emory AQ) is an effort to monitor and report air quality around Emory University’s Main Campus. The high levels of development and traffic in and around Emory University raised the question “how clean is the air we breathe?” For this reason, Emory AQ currently monitors particulate matter(PM), temperature, and relative humidity.
UrbanHeatATL is a cross-disciplinary collaboration empowering students and the Atlanta community through mapping extreme heat in underserved communities. The initiative aims to use this data, collected by community members, to further environmental and climate justice in Atlanta.
A comprehensive catalog that lists each federally funded Citizen Science project across the United States. You can filter by field of science, and agency.
Makers Making Change leverages the capacity of community based Makers, Disability Professionals and Volunteers to develop and deliver affordable Open Source Assistive Technologies.
Design and make a 3D printed product or prototype that improves the day-to-day life of someone with a disability or the elderly. Then share your story in a video submission for the chance to win amazing prizes.
