Biology Powerpoint

Citizen science projects are research activities that allow  non-scientists to participate in data collection and make contributions  to many areas of science from ecology to astronomy. These projects are  sponsored by individuals, organizations and universities. Activities  vary widely from observing and counting birds to completing surveys on  pet behavior.
You will be creating a presentation researching one citizen science  project from the list below (or you may search the internet for a  citizen science project of your choosing). You do not have to  participate in the study to complete your assignment, but many of these  projects are available for citizen participation all over the world.
