Remember Bill Nye the Science Guy, that television popularizer of science for kids? Maybe it’s time to give him an update and a facelift. That’s the goal of Susan the Scientist, a project of Dr. Susan Reslewic, who is launching a new blog, myspace, and youtube presence to (in her words):
teach ‘citizen science’ to kids and curious adults using music and objects in our local households to conduct simple experiments online. The idea is to make science both hip, simple, and most importantly fun. We hope to build this project and message making this available, free online this coming year.

Good luck to Susan. I think we all know that a hip, young woman science popularizer would be a Very. Good. Thing.
