Petridish

A crowd funding site for scientific projects. This is very much in the area of traditional sciences – biology, physics, chemistry etc – so not much use for those in more social, arts or humanities areas of research. A slightly simple and traditional feel belies a slick engine behind it. Like all such things that I am aware of and despite the .org domain, this is a for-profit venture that skims some of the money from donations.
