Have you heard of Kickstarter? If not, and you are an artist, writer, or musician, than you should check it out. It’s a great site where you can present your creative projects to the public and solicit donations. If you reach your required project budget, Voila! You’re funded! But until recently, if you were a scientist you were out of luck…but no longer. Check out Petridish.org! Do you need to fund a project? Do you have spare cash that you want to donate to a worthy scientist? Maybe you just want to flip through other people’s projects to learn. Whatever your interest, if you are a scientist, you should check out this new site.
