Citizen Science Association
A great example of volunteering is the participation of the general public in citizen science projects around the world.
A good place to start learning about the potentials and achievements of citizen science is the website of the Citizen Science Association. The Association describes citizen science as follows:
"Citizen science is the involvement of the public in scientific research – whether community-driven research or global investigations. The Citizen Science Association unites expertise from educators, scientists, data managers, and others to power citizen science. Join us, and help speed innovation by sharing insights across disciplines."
