Volunteer… from Your Couch
You’re feeling thankful, and you want to spread the love — but the holiday haze prevented you from organizing a volunteer effort in advance. No problem: Zooinverse is here to help, hosting a variety of online projects organized by the Citizen Science Alliance. That means academic smarty-pants people and other groups across the map meld minds to produce fascinating projects you can contribute to. Want to help recover worldwide weather observations from Royal Navy ship logbooks around the time of World War I? Or maybe search for exploding stars? Register for free on Zooinverse’s website to pitch in, and embrace your inner science nerd.
