Just $139

That is all we need to fund another project.  Invertebrates in My Tank requires just $139 to  fully fund a Texas 5th grade Gifted and Talented class to develop a salt water aquarium system and stock it with varied invertebrates.

So here is the challenge to you.  I need one person to step up to the plate and donate $70.  That person will only do so as a matching challenge, i.e. donate $70 only if others cough up the same amount.

Who is going to accept my challenge?  Who is going to be the hero? If you are that person comment below.

And because donations have slacked off, here is another of the worst music videos of all time.

Craig McClain is the Assistant Director of Science for the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center, a National Science Foundation supported initiative. He has conducted deep-sea research for 20 years and published over 50 papers in the area. He has participated in and led dozens of oceanographic expeditions taken him to the Antarctic and the most remote regions of the Pacific and Atlantic. Craig’s research focuses on how energy drives the biology of marine invertebrates from individuals to ecosystems, specifically, seeking to uncover how organisms are adapted to different levels of carbon availability, i.e. food, and how this determines the kinds and number of species in different parts of the oceans. Craig’s research has been featured on National Public Radio, Discovery Channel, Fox News, National Geographic and ABC News. In addition to his scientific research, Craig also advocates the need for scientists to connect with the public and is the founder and chief editor of the acclaimed Deep-Sea News (http://deepseanews.com/), a popular ocean-themed blog that has won numerous awards. His writing has been featured in Cosmos, Science Illustrated, American Scientist, Wired, Mental Floss, and the Open Lab: The Best Science Writing on the Web. His forthcoming book, Science of the South (http://www.scienceofthesouth.com/), connects cultural icons of South such as pecan pie with the science behind them.
