Citizen Scientists: Show us your Erlenmeyer flasks, your test tubes, your centrifuges, your stereomicroscopes, your mutant science experiments, yearning to be free. It’s Citizen Science month here on MAKE, an opportunity for us to feature a lot of the science content from the magazine and here online, a chance for us to collaborate with people who are leading the charge on citizen science initiatives, and a chance for us to share some great science how-tos on Make: Projects.

If you’re a maker doing citizen science ( or have a group doing science), have a science project, or have any desires for what you’d like to see us cover, please let us know. This is an exciting and growing area of making and we’re looking forward to spending a month celebrating it.
