Damn Good Technician

I'm a technician at a big ol' pharmaceutical company. A damn good technician, if I do say so myself.

Can't offer much beyond informing you it CAN be worse; the one time the lab I was in moved it was partially due to the fact said lab had been massively flooded over the holidays (we were going t. . .Read More

DGT, I second that hope for a better Vikings week... at least they won ;) I guess I should abstain from my "I'll put them in winning the spread every week" but it feels much easier to face I dreame. . .Read More

Is it just me or is that trophy getting grainier with each week?   Next week there should be a summary of the overall leader board. With only one point keeping me from the top . . .Read More

Awesome Stuff
Sunday, October 10, 2010

In thinking about DonorsChoose and the LabSpaces participation in this awesome program (donate here!!), I tried to ask myself, "When was the first time you remember science in school?"

I thought about it, and I could not remember a single bit of science prior to 7th grade.  Is that crazy?  I'm sure there were science parts of the curriculum in my elementary school, but for the life of me, I can't remember a single bit.

I'm taking this as a personal challenge - I want these elementary school kids to remember the great things their tremendously dedicated teachers put forward!  I know these projects can stick with these kids, and I'm hoping to be a bit part of this.

As such: I've set up a Giving Page with DonorsChoose that you can see here, or at the widget on the right-hand side of the page.  The donation window runs through November 9th, and I know everyone can chip in a few bucks here and there.  Give early, give often!!

I'm sure you're hearing this from a lot of science blogs, and you're asking yourself, "What sort of projects are out there?" Well, let me highlight a couple:

Cells, Cells and More Cells! Mrs. S, in southern California, teaches middle school science.  Her classroom needs some basic light microscopes and slide setups to learn about the basic components that make up plants and animals.  I think it would be awesome to provide these kids with their first opportunity to see these things!  Chip in!

We Are Little Scientists.  Ms. F, in Las Vegas, NV, teaches first grade.  Her kids are just starting to learn about the world, and she's planning a bunch of activities, including magnets, light, sinking or floating and magnifying glasses.  I'm eager to contribute to little kids learning about some basic (and cool!) science stuff.  Donate!

Calling All Scientists: Frog Life on View.  Mrs. S, in Detroit, MI, teaches early elementary school (4 year olds!).  She currently has frogs - well, technically tadpoles - living in a 5 gallon tank.  She needs a bigger tank so her kids can see the tadpoles develop into frogs.  I grew up with frogs and other critters near my house, and think it's sad that other kids can't see the same sort of awesome natural processes happening.  Help her out!

These are just three out of ~ 1600 tremendously worthy projects in the life sciences arena of Donors Choose.  Let's help 'em out!
