When reading through the terms and conditions of use, it was unclear to me if the use of screen shots was permitted in school assignments and other research materials.

I would like to clear up whether or not I am able to use screen shots of what I have designed in my assignment(s). Also how I would reference Fold It if I need to.

Seems to me you should be

Seems to me you should be fine to use screenshots in most cases, but if you're concerned you could tell me a bit more about your project and I can give you a definitive answer. :)

All I have done is used

All I have done is used screenshots to show what each amino acid looks like in fold it and then created basic protein strands for the repeating structures of spider silk. Then shown what amino acids are in them. All the work was done by myself so I was pretty sure it was fine. But I always like to be sure.

citation

If a web citation is sufficient, you could use the main page of the site (in APA style):
Foldit: Solve Puzzles for Science. (2013). Retrieved Sept. 1, 2013 from http://fold.it.

If you need a print publication for your reference, this is the main one:
Cooper,S., Khatib,F., Treuille,A., Barbero,J., Lee,J., Beenen,M., Leaver-Fay,A., Baker,D., Popović,Z. & Foldit Players (2010) Predicting protein structures with a multiplayer online game. Nature 466, 756-760.

You can get the text of that Nature article here: http://depts.washington.edu/bakerpg/drupal/node/16
