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.  >>

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."  >>

Peder Nelson
Researcher/Instructor
"We all have questions about where we live and the health of our environment. Citizen science provides the tools, methods, and resources to help answer some of these questions. Involving people in citizen science data collection increases their confidence in decisions that affect their communities, regions, or world. In my science, I want others to see the unique perspective that satellite data provides both spatially and temporally (you can time-travel now!)."  >>

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!"  >>
