Are you a Scientist? Do you have a scientific background? Do you perform Science communication? Do you want to learn more about a specific Scientist? If you can answer one of these questions with a `yes´ your profile could be presented at `A Scientist a day´!
Project: A Scientist a day
Help giving Science a face by presenting yourself or somebody you would like to present. The idea is to present the Scientists themselves, people who have a scientific background and those who actively communicate Science. By doing so, the image of the crazy Scientist is to be pushed in the right perspective (or proven). By getting to know the people who stand behind the findings and who divulge scientific knowledge, fears and distance to Science is intended to get loosened or even lost. Then the readers will be more open to see the fascination of the Science that surrounds us and influences our lives.
Participate in `A Scientist a day´. Present yourself or a colleague/friend. Recommend this project to others. Tell us about whom you would like to learn more. Exploit this possibility to show Science from another angle
How to Start? That´s easy. Answer some or all of the following questions and send us a picture. The rest will be done by us.
Where to send the data? To info(at)science-meets-society.com
When? Project start will be the 1st of April of 2012 –no joke! Profiles can also be handed in after the 1st of April.
