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. […]

Such a sad-looking, dry rain garden. I hope it’s ready for when the rain comes back!
This phone is no longer welcome on the second floor of our house (where the two rooms have now been converted to home offices). There’s way too many spam calls during the day, and it’s conference presentation season (ACS & others...)
We found a hidden gem today (Best of Philly's Most Overlooked Tourist Attraction!). If you are looking for a spot to learn some more U.S. history that is outdoors and plenty of space to socially/physically distance, you'll want to check out Fort Mifflin. On the Delaware and right next to the PHL airport, this National Historic Landmark is the only fort in Philadelphia and was first built in 1771 by the British to protect Philadelphia. I never knew we had a "Pennsylvania Navy" flag (which still flies above the fort). Bring a picnic lunch, bring your binoculars for wonderful bird/wildlife viewing, and wear boots/shoes you don't mind getting a little wet (it is called Mud Island for a reason...).
Excited to start the fall semester as a Faculty Athletic Representative to the @psubrandywine Women’s Volleyball team! Volleyball was an important part of my high school years (pictured here as co-captain of the Plainville High School Blue Devils, number 12) and undergrad/graduate years with intramurals and pick-up games. Looking forward to connecting with the coach & players soon & supporting @psubwsports student athletes
To connect with the new Drawdown DCIS series at the Delaware County Institute of Science, each month I'll be creating a mini-quilt for my front door that celebrates the sectors of climate solutions from @ProjectDrawdown and the topic from that month's DCIS lecture.
