Mr. Matteo Kimura
Citizen Scientist
We have the privilege of living in a time where we have access to so much technology to expand our understanding of the world and improve the human condition. These things inspire me to try to make the most of these opportunities.  >>

Mr. Yashraj Patil
Citizen Scientist
Citizen science can be implemented with individuals and groups, and it has the great power to bond everyone together and build a global and sustainable society. (…) Even non-scientific groups may contribute by using simplified general science that everyone is familiar with in their daily lives.  >>

Donna Blomquist
Programming Librarian, LaSalle Public Library
Our world is a complex place. The tiniest observations can have significant importance, and when multiplied, singular observations become data, and data leads to discovery and understanding. It is important, and citizen science allows non-scientists to contribute, to own a piece of understanding that will give us and the Earth a better future.  >>

Vivienne Byrd
Librarian
Through the Neighborhood Science program in the branches of Los Angeles Public Library, we are providing the participants with knowledge of mosquitoes and tools to track, record, and share their habitat information with researchers and scientists using the GLOBE Observer Mosquito Habitat Mapper app. We want our program participants to know that they also have the power to stop the spreading of the mosquito population and prevent possible disease outbreaks.  >>

Dr. Rusty Low
Lead Scientist, GO Mosquito Habitat Mapper
"As one of millions of people reporting data, what can emerge is a better understanding of the world around us, an understanding whose meaning and utility is not yet known. I love that I am a tiny part of something much, much bigger than me."  >>

Mr. Gary Popiolkowski
Citizen Scientist - Teacher
"It is my goal to excite students about what is around them, as I tell them when we are outside exploring, “Look up, look down, and look around”. Too many times they miss the cool and interesting things that are out there. So being a citizen scientist helps them enjoy these wonderful gifts and realize we can make a difference."  >>

Jeff Bouwman
Citizen Scientist -- Science Teacher
"It is my job to provide real-world learning opportunities and to encourage my students to take a closer look at our planet. I believe we need more informed citizen scientists in this world. My personal mission statement is simple, #GettingScienceDone!"  >>
