Description

Did you know you can help scientist directly! Historic records, pictures, wildlife and many other sources of data can't be analyzed by computer even today! Zoonieverse is an online site where anyone can sign up and contribute directly to science! Anyone can transcribe historic records, ID wild animals, or help find unique features of data!

Zooniverse has helped transcribe records of WWI & WWII burials, ID different wildlife species, or even help SETI look for alien life!

This started under the SETI at home project, and has spun off as hundreds of historic documents were transcribed, thousands of birds were ID, and sounds classified!

This is a fun lab that can be done in science, history, or social studies! in the future 3D-PT will add on other activities based on specific projects within Zooniverse!

If you have a half day or other odd time, your students can easily use this to fill the time and contribute to science in a meaningful way!

Please check that your district firewall will let you use Zooniverse. Some content like medical records are recommended for High School age and up.
