"How do you become a scientist or contribute to a great discovery?

We've all heard of Einstein, Newton and Hawking but did you know that even people without a PhD with some complicated sounding title can play an integral role in exploring and understanding our world?

Citizen science gives everyone the opportunity to engage with cutting edge science and make a difference in the world, whether that be sifting through images from space, detecting intergalactic particles with your phone or investigating radio bursts.

In these 3 short animations narrated by David Mitchell we look at the ways the general public of all ages are contributing to scientific discoveries and show you ways in which you can also help out." (OpenLearn from The Open University, YouTube.com)
