It's that time of the year again! I'm getting involved in Donors Choose for the month of October, check out projects I'm trying to raise money for at the link. There are other ScienceBloggers involved of course. Below the fold are further details from Janet: This year, the challenge runs for the entire month of October. A number of ScienceBloggers have already put together challenges, but I suspect a few more may arrive fashionably late. Here's who's in so far:
A Blog Around the Clock (challenge here)Adventures in Ethics and Science (challenge here)Aetiology (challenge here)Cognitive Daily (challenge here)Deep Sea News (challenge here)Evolgen (challenge here)Gene Expression (challenge here)Omni Brain (challenge here)On Being a Scientist and a Woman (challenge here)The Questionable Authority (challenge here)Retrospectacle (challenge here)The Scientific Activist (challenge here)Stranger Fruit (challenge here)Terra Sigillata (challenge here)Thoughts From Kansas (challenge here)Thus Spake Zuska (challenge here)Uncertain Principles (challenge here)
How It Works:
Follow the links above to the DonorsChoose website.
Pick a project from the slate the blogger has selected (or more than one project, if you just can't choose).
(If you're the loyal reader of multiple participating blogs and you don't want to play favorites, you can, of course, donate to multiple challenges!)
DonorsChoose will send you a confirmation email. Hold onto it; our benevolent overlords at Seed will be randomly selecting some donors to receive nifty prizes. Details about the prizes and how to get entered will be posted here soon!
Sit back and watch the little donation thermometers inch towards 100 percent, and check the ScienceBlogs leaderboard to see how many students will be impacted by your generosity.
We have a couple more thoughts on how to improve the math and science outlook for kids, thoughts that we'll be trying to turn into actions with your help. More on those soon!
