New Citizen Scientists Project from @scistarter looking for students to participate in. #scichat #science4kids
I just received an email notifying me of the new project. Looks like an interesting one. Find out more below.
Project Merccuri “Project MERCCURI is an investigation of how microbes found in buildings on Earth (in public buildings, stadiums, etc) compare to those on board the biggest building ever built in space – the International Space Station (ISS).
The project provides an opportunity for YOU— citizen scientists and student scientists —to participate in the research by using kits we will send you to collect microbes from surface areas in buildings or even your own cell phone or shoes.” Cost $0

SciStarter Awesome website for Citizen Scientists…including kids!
