Hi Everyone,

Those of you who have been members for a while may remember a series of targeted-interest surveys that CosmoQuest ran maybe a year (or more??) ago. We are once again asking for your input through a series of three surveys, each of which is targeting a specific aspect of CosmoQuest and what we do:


The first is our Podcast Listeners Survey. If you listen to podcasts, you are invited to provide your honest and anonymous feedback here:


Next is our Teaching with Citizen Science Survey. If you are a teacher – formal or informal – you are invited to complete this survey to provide feedback about using Citizen Science materials while teaching:


Finally is our Citizen Science Survey. I know there are a lot of Crew who actively participate in Citizen Science projects, so we would be very grateful if you would complete this survey for us!


The more feedback we get, the better CosmoQuest will be. Remember, all responses are anonymous.

We at CosmoQuest are again in seach of 9 individuals who live in the Continental United States to help us evaluate our website. We are looking for 6 primary and 3 alternate test subjects. Everyone selected will be compensated for their time with an Amazon gift card. The entire session should take about one hour on either Thursday, November 2, or Friday, November 3.

Our testing schedule is as follows:

Thursday, November 2: Noon to 6:00 PM EDT
Friday, November 3: Noon to 2:30 PM EDT

If you are interested in participating, the first step is for you to visit the following site to complete our short survey. This will determine your eligibility since the testing firm has a certain target demographic audience for this particular round of testing…

Once you have completed the survey, I will get back to you one way or another and, if you qualify, will let you know what the next step is.

Thanks in advance from the entire CosmoQuest team!
