So it’s been a pretty awesome turn-out for The Gam Classroom Initiative and several of the projects have been successfully funded. That doesn’t mean you should let up though. 541 potential Jaques Cousteaus (or Steve Zissous) have been reached, but I’d definitely prefer to see that number in the millions.
That said, if you’ve already given all your heard-earned cash but still want to support a budding scientist, here’s a way you can help out without having to pay a dime. Christie Wilcox of Observations of a Nerd is a finalist for a $10,000 blogging scholarship, and needs all the votes she can get. Right now the runaway favorite is a blog about reviewing cosmetic products. If that wins then not only is a totally worthy science blogger left out in the cold, but I’ll be forced to lose what’s left of my faith in humanity. Swarm that poll like a pack of hungry dogfish. Failure to help out will result in me sending this porbeagle to your house.
