SciWo’s Storytime: Pumpkins

This week Minnow and I are pleased to honor the first request from a DonorsChoose Challenge giver. (There’s still time, donate enough to complete a project, email me the receipt and you too can request a story.) I’ll admit to being pretty excited when this request came it, because it was perfectly seasonal…and we already…

There’s a few days left in our October DonorsChoose challenge, and even after that there are many more great projects out there waiting for our help.

We’re a week into our 2009 DonorsChoose challenge, and as of 11 am EDT, we’ve raised $250 for science education of high poverty students around the country. In 2007, we raised $1104, and last year: “Forty-two Sciencewomen readers contributed a total of $1863 to help 917 needy kids learn about science and engineering.” If we’re…

SciWo’s Storytime: Ocean!

In support of our on-going DonorsChoose challenge, this month Minnow and I will be exploring science-related books for SciWo’s storytime. I have to admit, I’m enjoying the challenge of finding sciencey books appropriate for a 2.5 year old’s attention span. There seem to be a plethora of books for the 4-8 year old set, but…
