Dear Radio JOVE Participants,

 

The first-ever free, public CitSciCon to celebrate NASA citizen science projects is happening on May 21-22, 2021. https://scistarter.org/NASA

Join Bad Astronomer Phil Plait, Science Friday, Zooniverse's Chris Lintott, Derrick Pitts from the Franklin Institute and many others for the first

of its kind, CitSciCon on May 21-22! Join any or all free online sessions to learn about and do fun and important activities that help advance real

research and discovery. No prior experience needed! 

 

This fun event features dozens of great NASA citizen science projects across 12 free online sessions with different science themes, from exoplanets

to ocean exploration. NASA project leaders will talk about their research and show you how to get involved! Discover the awesome, featured

projects (practice before the events if you'd like) and RSVP for live online sessions on our SciStarter CitSciCon page.

 

After you register and in preparation for this event, get to know the projects featured on SciStarter.org/NASA and consider creating a free 

SciStarter account. Many projects work closely with SciStarter to help SciStarter members keep track of their participation and earn certificates

and badges!   

 

The full list of speakers, including Chuck Higgins for Radio JOVE, is found here:
