Help Science go Mainstream!

Hello, Universe!

I’m putting a dream I have had for a long time on center stage, by applying to be the host of a show on Oprah’s new network.  Specifically, I am proposing a sassy science show, where I would share how fun, interesting, and relevant science can be to one’s life.

I could really use your support for this adventure;  you can vote an unlimited amount of times (as long as this is not done by a ‘bot).  Comments would be great, too!

So why is this so important?!

Science is important to ALL of us, not just those going into scientific or technical careers.  Science informs your choices so you are a more informed voter, mother, and world citizen.  It touches on everything from medical choices for your family, what effect the choices you make have on the environment, and a general sense of wonder about exploring the world around us.

My audition focuses on science for the ladies, but I am certainly pro-educating the XX’s as well, but in general Oprah reaches a wide amount of women, many raising the next generation, and that is an audience that hasn’t really been talked to about science in a cool mainstream way.

I was born to share science with the world, and think Oprah’s network is the best way to impact people and change the world by empowering people with a knowledge of science.

So please vote for me, and thank you for the support!!!

  1. Astrdel- I follow your tweets and saw you work at NASA. I blog about science with my six year old and are trying to connect with someone at NASA/ISS for post about toilets/Coriolis effect. Any suggestions? Thanks, Vince

    Hi Vince,

    Thanks for stopping by! I will ask folks about this– next week is most likely for a response because of the holidays. I believe the ISS is more suction that a water-flowing toilet. But this could be very interesting in other ways. I will look into this and get back to you. Your blog sounds great, so I will be checking it out.

    Vince,

    I have been researching this specific topic, but have not found the right person yet. One person who would be fun to talk to about this would be Astronaut Don Pettit. He has some neat videos he made on the ISS, and is a super nice guy– a quick google search will show you his style. He seems like someone that would be great interacting with kids. I can put you in contact with him (communications end up being moderated with Public Affairs). Let me know if I can do anything!
