The Citizen Scientists of Unixploria is a non-profit organization which promotes and takes part in different scientific endeavors in Unixploria.
Citizen science can be anything from taking part in an ecological survey to searching for extraterrestrial life forms. Unixplorians are curious, and what better way to help the scientific community than contributing yourself?
The project aims to help our botanists to do plant surveys on various ecological areas of Unixploria. This survey will be the first initial step to get a grasp of the botanical diversity in our kingdom.
The only thing we sometimes question about helping science make advances is the lack of ethical discourse. Why turn in data or contribute if that same data will later be used for questionable research projects? Food for thought.
It is imperative to us that our involvement in scientific projects does not clash with our ethical convictions. We have a few guidelines, however. The overall oath we as citizen scientists relate to is summarized in our Scientific Oath. Our national university, Academia Unixploria also use the same pledge.
- Exploring Culture and Nature
We explore the Unixplorian Culture and Nature by funding research and expeditions, both nationally and internationally.
Our expeditions take us to sites nearby as well as the far reaches of the earth. Our missions vary between simple documentation of the changing seasons to more scientifically oriented tasks like doing an inventory of the national flora and fauna
