That's All Folks - Science Studio is Live!


Today is the day everybody! The 2012 Science Studio collection is now live, and you can check it out in all its glory here. Obviously this whole thing couldn't exist without you, and we hope you enjoy the end result as much as we do.

This will be the last email from us to you via Kickstarter. But if you want to keep up with Science Studio and get updates about the project, when the nomination form for next year is live, and whatever other tricks we've got up our sleeves, you can subscribe to our mailing list here

Questions? Comments? Ideas? We're listening, so hit us at with whatever is on your mind.

Entering The Home Stretch

Exciting (almost final) update from Science Studio my friends.

We have our winners! With help from incredible judges and many hours of deliberation we've finally whittled down the list to our final selection, and we're almost ready to reveal those selections to you. Just a few more logistical moves on our side, and you'll have the Science Studio collection to peruse and enjoy. We'll deliver that collection to you on October 15th (unless you're one of our special backers who got early access, you'll get a note from us soon). 

We're really excited, and we hope you are too!

What's going on with Science Studio?

Hello fabulous backer friends!

Rose here, just giving you another quick update on where we're at with Science Studio. 

First, most of you should have received your swag in the mail by now. Those of you who got the USB and the books will have to wait a teensy bit longer. 

Second, what are we up to? Well, over the past month or so, Ben and I have sorted through all the submissions. We weeded out the ones that weren't eligible (anything that was made before or after 2012), and if a show was nominated lots of times, we picked three representative episodes - taking the nomination comments into account. Then we divvied up all the eligible nominations to send out to our amazing judges.

On July 1st, those judging forms went out. They'll come back to us by August 1st. Then, Ben and I will sort again, and pick our winners. The final collection will be published in September (exact date TBD). We'll let you know when it's up!

In the meantime, if you haven't already checked out the sampler collection on the site right now you should totally go do that. If you're all done with those, try The Brain Scoop, one of our current favorites.

Thanks again for all your support. We say it every time, but we couldn't exist without you.


Okay this is the right email address

So in that earlier update I gave you all the wrong email address. My bad! If you want to ask us questions, send an email to 

Sorry all! Hope to hear from you! Unless if it's to tell me that I'm dumb. I already know that.


A preview site, and your swag is on the way!

Hello Kickstarter friends!

It's us again, Science Studio! We have two cool things to tell you.

First, we launched a preview issue yesterday! Visit us at to see great stuff that wasn't made in 2012 (and is this intelligible for this year's collection). We hope the picks send you new places, and remind you of your own favorite stuff that you'll nominate with this form!

Second, we're mailing your swag to you this weekend! If you haven't sent us your address yet, now is the final chance to do so and get your goodies. Those of you who got custom USBs with the whole series on them will have to sit tight until we pick the full collection, but everyone else should see swag very soon!

We want to thank you again for your support in making Science Studio happen, and don't hesitate to ask if you have any questions about what we're up to by emailing
