About this project

Citizen Science Quarterly is a print magazine dedicated to sharing our love of science with everyone. We believe everyone can and should do science. And not just watered down science "projects" like a baking soda volcano.

Too long has science been seen as something boring that only a few people in an ivy tower are able to contribute too. Citizen Science hopes to change that by helping people realize that anyone can and should be involved in making real contributions to science.

Why Science?

Neil deGrasse Tyson explains this best

What have you done so far?

We have put out 2 issues filled with amazing content by volunteer contributors that have shipped from New York to Tokyo. 

Why Print?

Current digital formats aren't designed for discovery. You can't yet pick up a pdf on a friends coffee table and start flipping through it. And we dont want to restrict readership to only those with an eReader.

What Fancy Pants rewards ?

Science Shirts

Science Zines


What will the funding be used for:

All of our writers and editors are volunteers, all funding goes to printing and shipping the magazine.
