I learned about this from the Washington Science Teachers Assocation.
Galaxy Zoo and the Sloan Digital Sky Survey are looking for your help in sorting out different galaxies. It's a cool opportunity for anyone to go where few non-astronomers have gone before and help do real science at the same time.
School science fairs will never be the same.
