Citizen Science Featurettes presents: FoldIt! Online

Foldit is a revolutionary crowdsourcing computer game enabling you to contribute to important scientific research. This page describes the science behind Foldit and how your playing can help.

This event is a 2-hour virtual workshop introducing students to the puzzle-solving potential of crowdsourced research.

Each Citizen Science Featurette includes:

  1. Orientation and training in the project’s methodology
  2. Hands-on “field-test” of the project interface
  3. Debrief and discussion 

This event is open to participants of all disciplines and skill levels and requires no special knowledge or skills to participate. 

This event is scheduled for Thursday, September 30th from 2-4 pm ET. The set-up instructions and Zoom link will be sent to you via a reminder email 24 hours prior to the workshop.
