There are some really wonderful citizen science projects out there and some citizens have been able to make real discoveries. But, the reality of most of the projects is that citizens contribute or maybe even verify data, but too many projects have little or no opportunities for analysis. This is an issue that many projects are struggling with. There are over 200 citizen science projects, but too few have the citizens doing anything more than gathering data or verifying data.

EBird is a successful project that has opportunities for citizens to contribute and to do their own research. Zooniverse has some space related ones also. Is anyone besides Nicole and I involved in a citizen science project now?
