Across the Finish Line! Citizen Science Month Final Days.


You did it! As of April 26, you’ve completed 1,024,319 acts of science, with four days still to go! But even though we’ve reached our target and April ends next week, we’re not skimping on fun citizen science activities! We’re focusing on medicine and public health, along with a big One Million Acts of Science Celebration.
