genegeek CAN

Hi. I'm genegeek (aka Catherine Anderson). Thanks for stopping by. I realized during my PostDoc that I preferred learning and explaining new results to doing science so I started a non-traditional career of teaching and outreach. I'll be using this space to explore public perception of genetics and other cool molecular biology stuff.

Awesome Stuff
Monday, October 11, 2010

The LabSpaces bloggers are part of a DonorsChoose campaign. DonorsChoose.org is an organization that takes helps K to 12 classrooms across the US improve education. Teachers write up a request for needed materials that will make dramatically improve education for their students.

When I heard the description, I thought of the extras = newer instruments or fun field trips. But some classes want chairs or pencil crayons!! Please help out these kids.

One of the good ideas of this campaign is that you can choose which projects to support.  For all the science bloggers, HP is going to match donations so your money is worth twice as much!

I've picked a few projects on my giving page (look to the right sidebar for the blue and white widget under 'Awesome Stuff').  I've focused on New York city and science because I'll be in New York for the campaign and science is my background. But if you have suggestions for other classes, please let me know.

If you need more incentive to give, please check out the video on Odyssey's page. Warning: may be NSFW.
