Zooniverse Research Projects
Earn service-learning hours online by participating in science projects through Zooniverse.
Help researchers around the world with tasks you can complete on your computer. Some
projects include monitoring wildlife cameras, climate patterns, deciphering botany
samples, or identifying marine invertebrates!
To get started, visit www.zooniverse.org and create an account. You may choose from any project, and you can track the classifications
you’ve completed from your profile page. In order to receive service-learning credit,
you must complete our Zooniverse Project Reflection form, which includes uploading a screenshot of your profile page and completed classification
number. Approximately fifty classifications equals one hour of service-learning credit.
