ME – Science-a-thon for ESWN

1

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!

  1. […] see the life of a scientist beyond the laboratory and fieldwork. I created a blog post about my Science-a-Thon adventures in Maine back in 2017, and I was looking forward to participating this year while at sea on the JOIDES Resolution. […]

That’s a “W” for the Sixers today! Now if the other Philly team can get a “W” tomorrow…. Nice to see Franklin and Swoop supporting each other. We’re not called The City of Brotherly Love for nothin’!
Starting #SciArtFriday by cutting fabric for a new @joides_resolution #EXP390 quilt. I’ve never focused so much on cutting! The fabric is Three Cats/Da Gama Textiles that is made in South Africa & where I purchased it post-expedition. No room for errors - it’s a long way to get more! (unless @clairerouty wants to go with me to Cape Town again! 😂)
Dropped these winter hats off at the @psu_bw_socialimpact center today. So glad that my de-stressing #crocheting can provide some winter gear for campus students (but 7 hats made in the past month - eek! It’s been an interesting start to the semester….)
I like to celebrate the small victories… like sewing a zipper for the first time! I took a class today at #vikingsewinggallery and made a pillow with a hidden zipper. Oh, the future possibilities….
I'm excited to share the first quilt in my new mini quilt collection. It is a celebration of the Endangered Species Act, which turns 50 this year. I'll be restarting #FrontDoorScience this year to share a new quilt each month with those walking through the neighborhood. I'm starting with this one (& thanks to @legalquilts for picking up the center fabric for me while I was out to sea! It is serving as the inspiration for the collection.). To learn more about this quilt, click on link in bio.
