Hi everyone! I’m participating in Science-A-Thon, a five-day social media marathon of photos and posts sharing a day-in-the-life of scientists, science professionals, science teachers, science journalists, and anyone else who uses STEM in their day! I’ll be posting my day on [date] and you can follow hundreds more with #scienceathon and #dayofscience! This campaign raises awareness of the coolness of being a scientist and also supports the Earth Science Women’s Network, Girls Who Code, and the Society of Women Engineers. Together, these three non-profits promote career advancement for women scientists, build positive science cultures, and help young women view themselves as future scientists. Please consider giving to this great group!
