      How big of a budget are we talking here? A thousand? a million? A billion?
      There is currently a BioBus, a high tech lab on wheels which drives around a brings microbiology to intercity schools. I would like to fund a new bio bus full of awesome animals. It would have bugs of course, but also bats and lizards and snakes and mice and turtles and anything small enough to fit.

      Well, if I had all the money in the world I’d be flying around the world a lot to spend more time doing field research and collecting weird animasl!

      My most immediate plans for outreach (budget willing) are to start a YouTube channel like “The Brain Scoop” with Emily Graslie of the Field Museum. That way I can reach even more people than just the classrooms that I can get to, and spread my love of science around the world–anywhere where you have an internet connection!

      If you haven’t seen “The Brain Scoop,” you have no idea how you’ve been missing out! Check it out here!:
