This week, I talk to Darlene Cavalier, the founder of SciStarter, which is a website where ordinary people sign up to help scientists collect data for various research projects. Darlene has recently been named a National Geographic Fellow and Explorer. SciStarter has a wide variety of projects to choose from!

Also, Chuck Darwin tells us what a Scientist actually does, Jack answers a viewer's question about how many school years it takes to be a Scientist, and Tito gives us a list of characteristics of a good Scientist! Do you have what it takes? Find out on today's show, How to Be a Kid Scientist!
