Two Weeks Left, Stretch Goals, Translations, and still chugging along!
It's been another great week - we're almost at 1,200% funding with over 1,600 backers with two weeks still to go! Which brings me to...
We've got a couple ideas percolating for Stretch Goals and we'd definitely like to hear what YOU find most valuable. Please leave Stretch Goal suggestions in the comments below.
We are already making the books with the highest quality reasonable. We didn't want to hold quality hostage depending on reaching a specific funding amount.
But I'd like to hear about what other fun stretch goals backers would be interested in?
Translations of Science Wide Open
We've had quite a few requests for translated versions of Science Wide Open so I thought I'd bring the idea up in an Update. We unfortunately don't have the bandwidth to offer physical copies of any translated versions (at least not yet :-), but we're hoping to offer translated versions of the eBooks. Is this something many backers would be interested in? We'll keep you up to date on this and reach out to you international backers for feedback if this becomes an option!
Three our favorite media mentions from this week...
Geek Dad "I can’t wait to add these books to our library. Head over to the Kickstarter and get yourself a set!"
Black Girl Nerds "the Science Wide Open series will inspire as well as teach"
The Domestic Geek "I feel like it’s so important to educate our kids, especially girls, that they can do anything."
more art-in-progress from Danielle - Women in Biology!
We're still working on how to better incorporate the Linnean System into this illustration, but I think it's beautiful none-the-less.
A Kickstarter that I thought was pretty cool!
I like mentioning other campaigns that I think are cool. And as a parent (and a HUGE gamer) I am always on the lookout for fun games I can play with my daughter and my friend's kiddos. Not to mention that I think playing games as a family is great for kids and parents for a million different reasons!
With this in mind, I backed Problem Picnic as soon as I saw it! What makes this game immediately appealing to me is the contrast between chaos and carefulness, as well as action-packed yet still brainy and tactical feel.
Thanks again for a great Week 2!
Overflowing with appreciation,
