What Science Wide Open topic would you like to see next? Periodic: A Game of the Elements LIVE on Kickstarter
Hope you all are doing well!!
Had some exciting news I wanted to tell you - so, we've gotten many queries from you all and from other backers about continuing the Science Wide Open series, and so we've begun talking with the Science Wide Open author about creating additions to the series!
Here's where I'd like your feedback - So, we of course already have Women in Biology, Women in Chemistry, and Women in Physics... I'd love to know what other science disciplines you'd like to see next.
Would you answer this this 4 question survey and let me know what science disciplines (and women scientists!) you'd love to see featured in our next set of Science Wide Open?
Our New Game - Periodic: A Game of The Elements
Another exciting bit of news is that I recently launched a board game on Kickstarter that features the periodic table as the game board. Wonderfully geeky, I know.
- In Periodic, players use Periodic Trends to move around the periodic table, "discovering" specific elements shown on Goal Cards to score points. While moving across the periodic table, players also try to end their turn in specific element families to race other players to claiming limited bonus points.
It was fully funded in a couple hours, and it's looking like we just broke $130,000 today. Periodic has a basic gameplay that's ideal for the science classroom or family game night :-)
Interested in submitting your children's science book manuscript?!
Would you (or someone else you know!) be interested in writing children's science themed books that are emotionally gripping and scientifically accurate?
We've searching for submissions for science-themed children’s book manuscripts - mainly focused on biology, chemistry, physics and mathematics themed books geared toward kids within the K-5th grade range.

I wanted to share a project that I am backer of. Bailey started writing the Stardust series when she was 8 and is now on her 3rd book. Please consider checking out her new book - Stardust Explores Earth's Wonders: Geology & Evolution
Well, that’s it for now. Hope you are all having a great start to your Fall!
