Pop in a vote and pop in some spare change to help out two great projects – for SCIENCE!
Please vote for me in the AMP Do Your Thing scholarships. I’m applying for a scholarship to make a website to house my animations about glowing creatures alongside more info for people who want to dig a little deeper. Go to the FaceBook page for AMP and search for Siouxsie Wiles.
Dr Siouxsie Wiles is one of the wonderful people I met at the New Zealand Skeptics convention (Hi also to Gold!) and I interviewed her for the Token Skeptic podcast (ep #119), about her work with the Bioluminescent Superbugs Group in the School of Medical Sciences at Auckland University (check out her blog at Infectious Thoughts on Sciblogs).
That’s just a vote to help out a great scientist – if you can spare some change (I nearly wrote “space some change” and that’s pretty apt considering the project) – there’s nearly under a day left to fund Uwingu-A New Way to Fund Space Exploration, Research, and Education:Head over to the Indiegogo site and help them meet their goal in the next 26 hours or so!
Finally, new AudioBoo interview for ScienceRewired – the conference is happening under a month’s time in Adelaide, and they’ve got student discounts and scholarships – hop over to ScienceRewired to find out more!
After a whirlwind year touring Australia with Questacon Smart Moves, Kirsten Gottschalk found her way back into astronomy at the International Centre for Radio Astronomy Research (ICRAR) in Perth. She now gets to meet astronauts, talk about the world’s biggest telescope (the Square Kilometre Array), build telescopes in the desert and show off the gorgeous West Australian night sky to anyone that comes near. Part of her job is also babysitting theSkyNet and communicating with its 7,500 members. http://www.icrar.org and http://www.raspberryastro.wordpress.com
