Crowdfunding for Science and STEM Education

There is so much that scientists still don’t know – but there isn’t a lot of funding out there for research subjects that could be construed as obscure. Crowdfunding website RocketHub and their partner #SciFund Challenge aim to create resources for exactly this type of research.

Inventors and entrepreneurs already benefited greatly from crowdfunding and scientists are following suit; and also engaging with consumers and fans directly. It’s unprecedented and very exciting that ordinary people can now help with scientific progress, says Brian Meece, CEO and Co-founder of RocketHub.com.

And who knew; art and science could be fun! There are some cool, fun projects already funded by RocketHub.com and this could be the incubator for some real future innovations.
