Readers of mine, you know science is dear to my heart, and getting girls being interested in the hard sciences is something that I’m passionate about. Let me tell you up front I got no compensation for this post (excepting the participation in the giveaway); I just wanted to get the word out for a good cause.
There’s this spiffy little giveaway for the Nancy B’s Science Club Microscope and Activity Journal by Educational Insights. It’s a cute little thing good for girls ages 8 and up. Giveaway widget down at the bottom.
Now here’s the real prize:
Nancy B’s has a Summer Science Scholarship contest – for ages 8 to 17 – now open for entry by May 1st, 2014 on the Nancy B’s Science Club website. The winner will receive $500 plus five science tools to help make their science dreams come true.
The giveaway for the microscope is open to everyone ages 18+ in US & Canada, excluding Quebec. The scholarship is open to people ages 8-17 in the US & Canada, excluding Quebec (and a parent has to give consent for you to enter).
