Budding Biologists

If you're interested in becoming a biologist, we've gathered a few resources that might help you out. These resources can be helpful no matter where you are in the process of becoming a biologist.

Online Biology Learning Tools

There are many interesting tools available online that provide information about the various topics in biology. Here are a few to get you started:

Mapping the Brain     3D videos of the inter-workings of the cell 
Encyclopedia of Life The Forest Service 
Genetics PBS biology videos
General Health Weather and climate 
•Plants   

Getting Involved with Citizen Science

Citizen science enables the public to help out on special studies. Usually people make observations of certain plant or animal species. They can then record them online as part of a larger data set. Here are some of the ongoing citizen science projects:

Program Name Location
SciStarter (varied) Worldwide
Frog Watch (frogs & toads)   USA
Journey North (various migrating species) mainly Mexico & USA
Clumpy (plants & microbes) Worldwide
eShark (sharks) Coasts worldwide
Zooniverse (varied) Worldwide

Volunteer Opportunities to Explore Biology

Volunteering can be an important step in discovering what is interesting to you. There are many resources available to help you find volunteer and non-profit positions. Another good way to get involved is to find an establishment or program near you that sounds interesting and ask them how you might be able to help.

Preparing for a Career in Biology

It's never too early to explore different career options available for a biologist. There are resources available to help with general career preparation, as well as others that provide information about various career opportunities.
