SciStarter (see SciStarter.com) helps people discover opportunities to engage in scientific research through a searchable database of more than 2200 projects and events shared with PBS, Discover, the National Science Teachers Association, libraries, museums, and more. Participants can find, bookmark, join, and track their contributions to projects through SciStarter. Project leaders can register their projects/events/tools on SciStarter and tap into free promotional and recruiting services while learning more about the interests and behaviors of their participants. Researchers can access dynamic data about the landscape of projects (topics, audiences, and goals, for example), or work with SciStarter to dive deeper into analytics.
If you are a project leader, this webinar will help you learn how to:
1) easily add your project, event, or tool and, 2) integrate new, NSF-supported embeddable tools to recruit, retain, and learn more about the behaviors of participants.
If you are a researcher, this webinar will help you learn how to:
1) quickly access dynamic data about projects (% with classroom materials; % of online projects, and more), and 2) work with SciStarter to access deeper analytics.
If you represent a STEM resource provider, University, or K-12 institution, this webinar will help you learn how to:
1) embed a plug-in version of the SciStarter database on your own website; 2) pilot our subscription-based, curated, facilitated citizen science experience.
