Kickstarter is great for technology. It’s not so great for science. And a few nascent science-only crowdfunding sites aren’t great for science communication projects either. Even though science communication is increasingly recognized as an important need in science, it’s a fifth wheel when it comes to funding. Government funding agencies and philanthropists don’t have a neat box for it, and as it turns out, neither to crowdfunding sites. To help fill this gap and catalyze more spending on science communication projects nationwide, nSCI is building the first science communication crowdfunding site. We hope to unveil it in 2015—stay tuned.
