I feel so sad about ALL of the evictions that we’ve had! I’d gotten so used to seeing everyone pitching in to the chats and learned so much from each of the other scientists! Also, I feel like everyone is so down to earth and easy to talk to–and FUNNY–that I really hate to see anyone go! I was so happy that Zoe chose to continue chatting even after her eviction, but I feel like each of us brings something special and you’d lose some of that dimension if there was just one of us there.
That’s why, if I win, I am going to be incorporating the broadest range of science I can into my outreach. I’ll start with my focus on human evolution and primates in Africa because that’s my background, but I hope that I can find other scientists to join me, just like we’ve seen on I’m A Scientist USA.
We’re not all inspired by the same science, but I think that experiencing some of the range of options and opportunities like we’ve seen here with brains, bugs, food, bats, and bones, is a good place to start!
