2 for 1 carnivals: Scientiae and Diversity in Science

i-9dc84d4d9156dccb30d5f62466b4219a-swblocks.jpgThe February Scientiae is up at Fairer Science. Pat picked a great theme for this month's carnival "Our Dreams for a Better World." Go check out all the great ideas and then let's get to work turning them into reality.

And now for an exciting announcement, DNLee of Urban Science Adventures is kicking off a new monthly carnival focused on Diversity in Science.

Blogs of every genre are invited to write a special feature post about a person who is a pioneer and/or innovator in any of the amazing fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

Tell us all about him/her?
How has this person impacted field of STEM and/or inspired you?
Or why is his/her story interesting?

With this being Black History Month, the inaugural carnival will be about African-American Innovators. Simply post a fabulous essay about any science hero past or present and submit it to the carnival. Deadline is Friday, February 20th. I'll host this first edition of Diversity in Science on Tuesday, February 24.

Complete details can be found on DNLee's post. My field is so (d**n) white that I'm going to have to look hard for African-American innovator (and of course, I'll want a woman), but I am looking forward to the challenge. And I hope you all will join me.
