As more and more people are slowly coming out of the woodwork and revealing they are going to Science Foo Camp, I am getting more and more excited about it! Yes, I have registered and reserved my hotel room already.
Sure, people like Neal Stephenson and Carl Djerassi are going to be there (as well as all those bloggers I linked to before – see the link above), but I am so excited to be able, for the first time, to meet in person Gabrielle Lyons, the power behind Project Exploration (the link to their site has been on my sidebar – scroll down – for about a year now). I wrote about it in more detail before.
They are gearing up for a busy summer season, taking inner-city kids to labs, museums and dinosaur digs. That, of course, costs something, but it is a cause worth supporting, so if you can, go here and see how you can help.
