ME – Science-a-thon for ESWN

Leave a comment

June 25, 2017 by Dr. G

I’m participating in the Science-a-thon (https://www.scienceathon.org/), a global effort by scientists to document their lives for 12 hours on one day with 12 photos. Photos are being posted on Twitter and Instagram to offer a glimpse into what a day in the life of a scientist looks like. I blogged about the project on my AGU blog, and the project is also raising funds to support the Earth Science Women’s Network (https://eswnonline.org/) (see my CrowdRise fundraising page).

Although the official day of the Science-a-thon is July 13th, I participated early! (scientists have the option to do so). You can check out my 12 tweets from my participation on June 22nd while I was in Maine, and please do click on the links in the tweets to my Instagram account to read a fuller description of my adventures for the day.

I’ve also summarized everything on Storify. Please tune in to social media on July 13th to learn from other scientists with the hashtag #ScientistForADay – Enjoy!

I just submitted my entry to the Nature Narratives writing contest. If you are a fan of nature and a friend of @tylerarboretum or @psubrandywine or @pennstatebwalum, then you should take your inspiration and put it into words in any genere! Deadline is November 15th. Thanks to @vairolibrarypsu and the Penn State Brandywine Sustainovation Team and Tyler Arboretum for organizing this fun event! I can't wait to read all of the entries (not just the winning ones!) in the Short Edition dispenser on campus. Check out the details: https://tinyurl.com/naturenarratives
Just finished leading a teacher program at @TylerArboretum this morning on the @EPA Air Quality Flag Program. So thankful to @sustainPSU @PepsiCo for the funding that provided a $100 flag set to each teacher for free.
Yes, I got up early on a Saturday to see the #ISS International Space Station over Philadelphia/Media on Nov 9, 5:59 AM #SpotTheStation via @NASA - so cool, I’ll be geeking out about this experience all day!
Dear weekend, please allow me the time to start reading this book, a chronological journey of natural history/oceanography based on Melville’s experiences and what was known about the ocean at the time (1851). #bookstagram #booksofinstagram #ahabsrollingsea #richardjking
Was talking to a nurse today, she complimented my nautical @SeaBagsMaine. I told her I was an oceanographer, and she was fascinated to hear me speak about @NOAA - love these unexpected #scicomm opportunities! #seabags #recycledmaterials#recycledsails #sciencecommunication #nauticalstyle #compassrose
