Hey everyone, it's me, the soon-to-be-18 year-old, back at it again with another fun side project. Not only do I love making things, but I also love science. I taught myself React and made Help a Scientist, a Chrome extension that tries to do some amount of social good. HaS replaces your new tab page with a randomly-chosen way to contribute to a citizen science project. Ask me anything. I crave feedback.

@emilyniemann It's currently pulling random projects from the SciStarter API, but I would love to add that feature if enough people need it.

Nice project I'd add some screenshots to the landing page so potential users will understand how it works.
