All Canadians can get involved and contribute to science through the Government of Canada's Citizen Science Portal. The portal showcases various science projects and experiments happening across Canada and highlights the innovative research Canadians are doing in a wide range of fields. Anyone can get involved in the vast array of scientific projects, including eButterfly and IceWatch as well as projects on whale reporting, shark sightings, local weather and climate conditions and so much more!
During her recent TED talk, Minister of Science Kirsty Duncan encouraged all Canadians to get out and engage with the science happening in their communities. "It is our collective voice that will ensure the freedom of science. And after all, science is for everyone, and it will lead to a better, brighter, bolder future for us all." Checking out the portal is a great, simple first step to learn more about what's going on in the science field in Canada.
