Today is World Science Day, an internationally celebrated day to increase the public’s ability to participate more meaningfully in science and to take action on environmental issues important to their community. The day also coincides with International Science Center and Science Museum Day. At SciStarter, we see citizen science as the perfect way to celebrate and promote science today (and everyday!).

SciStarter is partnering with NASA and its GLOBE Observer App to involve citizen scientists in understanding their global environment. You can participate today by downloading the GLOBE Observer App through the iTunes App Store or Google Play and use the referral code SciStarter. Then, start classifying the clouds above you! Simple as that! Remember to use our referral code (SciStarter) and see your contributions on the GLOBE site!

When you’re ready to do more real science with NASA, get involved in the El Nino project to ground-truth satellite data, monitor soil moisture levels near you, and more.

There are 1500+ citizen science projects and events on SciStarter you can do to celebrate World Science Day. Find one through the Project Finder.
