Participatory Science Inspiration

It is promising to know that the Internet is facilitating community involvement in scientific research on an international scale. Take a look at recent articles about toad research in Africa, mapping the solar system, and there is one programme called Feeder Watch out of Cornell to collect bird population data, and Firefly Watch out of the Museum of Science. These participatory science models might help designers take on the task of creating new types of community involvement through games.
