Voices For Science – Twitter campaign for Earth Week 2019

Leave a comment

May 18, 2019 by Dr. G

I’ve recently started my year-long journey as a member of the American Geophysical Union (AGU) Voices for Science program in the Media/Communications track [see my posts on my AGU blog about my start in the program]. Part of my goals for the upcoming year is to increase my engagement on Twitter and the educational information and resources I share. In late April, I completed my first week-long Twitter campaign (utilizing TweetDeck to queue the tweets), tapping in to Earth Day/Earth Week and the Earth Day Network‘s 2019 theme of Protect Our Species. I’ve included all the tweets I posted below. Enjoy! (And it shouldn’t be any surprise that I focused most of my efforts on ocean species…)


Starting on Monday, which was April 22 (the actual Earth Day):

 


And on to the second day…

 


On to the third day…

 


Moving on to the next day…

 


And for the final day of Earth Week…

 


And then, one final tweet….

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.
Excited to be a part of the 2023 Penn State Writing in Integrated Studies Faculty Training Program. This book is the framework for the discussions - can’t wait to dive in and do more with my classes!
