Mark2Cure profiled in the San Diego Union TribunePosted by ginger on Feb 3, 2015 in citizen science, crowdsourcing, mark2cure, open participation science, press | 0 comments
The San Diego Union Tribune did a nice little article on Mark2Cure, which helped us reach a lot of local citizen scientist volunteers. If you missed the article, you can read it here.
If you joined Mark2Cure because of the UT San Diego, THANK YOU, and please help spread the word! The article has been tremendously helpful in allowing us to reach new volunteers, but unless our citizen science volunteers continue to contribute, we will not be able to succeed. If you, like other volunteers are worried about not having a science background, please don’t worry about it! You DON’T need a science background to contribute.
We would love to have you if you:
- Can Read (but most likely you can if you’re reading this)
- Are willing to learn (props if you enjoy learning!)
- Are willing to help
That’s it! If you fit the criteria above, please join us by visiting Mark2Cure.org/beta and click on ‘Start now’ (if you don’t have an account) or ‘login’ (and continue to contribute if you do).
