rhe presentation will highlight NSF-funded platforms and tools that broaden awareness of opportunities to engage in authentic scientific research and deepen participation in science and society. Specifically, the SciStarter citizen science platform will be discussed as a mechanism to support three audiences:

-current and potential citizen scientists (we make it easy to find the right project and track contributions to projects)

- scientists and project organizers (efficient tools to promote projects, recruit the right volunteers, and learn more about participants’ interests)

-researchers studying the landscape of projects and participants (with more than 1700 projects and 50,000 registered users, the SciStarter platform provides a turnkey resource for many researchers)
