Pursue a scientific research question for the crowd with a prize for the project with the most backers.
Help make more science happen
Answer The Challenge
Anyone can create an experiment in response to a grant. Projects must be submitted before the launch deadline to be eligible. Winners will be chosen when all of the eligible campaigns end.
Each project will be approved by a panel of science and topic experts, and all review comments are transparent and open to the public.
Three’s a party, but three hundred is a crowd. By backing a project, you’ll receive updates, results, and data from project creators. This is science by the people, for the people.
