A different way to get kids excited about science. A way YOU can help reach kids everywhere, from East LA to rural Georgia– anywhere kids might not be getting the best science education.
Monty put on a concert this Sunday for OKC Atheists (you know how lots of freethinker groups around the country are trying to get more women? more friendly to families? homosexuals? hehehe, OKC Atheists kinda rock at that 😛 we go to the bars one night and have a kids party the next day. W00T!!!)
It was really nice of him, and there was nothing but positive feedback on the event. For real, check out his blog— look at all those pics of all those little ones learning about top tier science, inspired by real scientists… HOW CAN YOU NOT SUPPORT THAT??
And if you still need one more reason to donate a bit to this project, Monty has asked me to do a ‘Born to do Science‘ event at the Stillwater Public Library. In other words, there might be an OFFICIAL ERV SONG in the future, thanks to Monty. I cant think of a way to make “HI KIDS! YOURE MADE OF VIRUSES!” not terrifying to children, so Id love to talk about the vaccine arm of my research, to teach them about vaccines, and why they are good (you think viruses are bad, but the viruses in vaccines are our friends– the help us not get sick!).
I COULD HAVE A SONG ABOUT VIRUSES AND VACCINES BEING OUR FRIENDS, PEOPLE.
EDIT 8.30 am on Friday: YAAAAAY!!! FUNDED!!! Thanks in no small part to you guys! WHOOOOOOOOO!!!
