#SciFund Challenge

May 7, 2012

I hate to ask people for money, but I’m asking anyway. It’s for science!

My proposal to improve SingAboutScience.org is part of Round 2 of the SciFund Challenge, a crowdfunding platform for supporting science projects with modest budgets (a few thousand dollars or less).

The SciFund Challenge is led by two ecologists, Drs. Jai Ranganathan and Jarrett Byrnes, and unsurprisingly includes a lot of ecology projects (and has drawn commentary from eco-blogger Jeremy Fox). But topics a bit nearer and dearer to my heart are represented as well: tropical parasites (Projet Crevette: Save Children From Disease), high school biology education (Recipe For Scientists), chemical engineering (Renewable Fatty Alcohols From Biodiesel), etc. One might go so far as to say that there’s something for everyone!
