A Whirlwind of a Week! 

Well, we had a pleasant surprise this week. I was on my phone, scrolling through some Kickstarter projects and every time I checked back in to Science Wide Open, the backer numbers were flying upward. 

Come to find out, Kickstarter picked up our project and blasted it out to their entire Kickstarter newsletter. Yeah, that made for a good weekend. :-) 

We've had a TON of media attention these past weeks that I thought we should mention: 

Language Translations

We got a lot of feedback on language translations. Looks like Spanish, French and German were the most frequently mentioned. This is something that we will put on out list of items to address as we move forward with production.  

Stretch Goals  

I really like the idea of downloadable coloring books, or some other downloadable stretch goals, since this won't add to our production schedule or cause shipping rates to jump. We've started talking to our artist about this possibility! 

More deatils to come, but everyone who pledged to receive at least the eBook will get the downloadable Coloring book as well. And we've got a couple ideas we are toying around with that we can send downloadable links to for free!

Portland NSTA (Natl' Science Teachers Assoc.) Conference - Come Say Hi!   

We'll be at the National Science Teachers Association Convention in Portland from Nov 10-12! If you'll be at the convention, please come by our booth and say hi! We'd love to meet you!!  

Overflowing with appreciation!

      @Megan We're definitely excited about creating a downloadable coloring book! We want to completely wrap up the artwork for the three books (getting close!) before deciding what we'd like to do for the coloring book, so no download link yet!

      @ Mr Helmut - Well, why don't we just stick with the English version for now and then wait on the German version. I don't want to delay to current project making trying to do too many things all at once. I've been burned too many times by adding more tasks to my plate than I could handle.
