This year has been a big step (and with the release of the community package more like a giant leap) for the SPOTTERON Citizen Science Platform, and thanks to your help and interest, we can now offer a mobile and interactive channel for every CitSci project out there. 

It is already tradition to use our photoshopping skills to build a special christmas card for you. This year's edition is packed full of science facts and fun activities in the winter season. And you can also use it as a Wallpaper so.. click to enlarge!

WE WISH YOU A MERRY CITSCI CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We will now be off from regular task until next year*, but before that we want to wish you all the best for the holidays, merry christmas and a happy new year! 
See you 2018!
