A: Support for the science communication work of Those Nerdy Girls comes in many forms. Here are a few ideas on our wish list!
Those Nerdy Girls aren’t going anywhere. While our work was born in a moment of crisis (a really long moment), the need for accessible, practical science is evident now more than ever. This year we’ve expanded our work with a new Reproductive Health squad to address the urgent needs in that area. The threat of health misinformation will persist in the absence of COVID-19. WE ARE HERE FOR IT! https://dearpandemic.org/donate/
You can also support us financially (and look super Nerdy Cool) by purchasing new NERDY SWAG, available here.
Those Nerdy Girls are committed to translating need-to-know science, training additional science communicators, and engaging with our community to answer essential questions. Financial gifts allow us cover expenses and hire logistic support to keep the science flowing at this almost entirely volunteer operation.
In the New Year we will be welcoming a new social media squad to innovate our platforms & content, hoping to reach an even wider audience with practical and factual science.
