This podcast is worth a million bucks. 11.5 million to be exact! That’s the amount of grant money given to science communicator and astronomer Dr Pamela Gay’s research and outreach program known as Cosmo Quest!
And we are SO darn happy about it!
Many of us here at Mad Art Lab and Mad Art Cast are very familiar with the hard work that Pamela and her colleagues have been doing over the years and we have done what we could to try help with their fundraisers to keep this astronomy project alive. We completely understand the value of Cosmo Quest as highly effective science outreach. And now we are absolutely thrilled to find out that the stress of fundraising has been lifted from Pamela’s shoulders and she can now focus on collaborations with educators, scientists, and creative astronomy based outreach that will teach thousands and dare I say, millions of people of all ages about the wonders of the universe!
This episode was like on big giant group hug. We could be happier about this news!
Listen in to find out about Cosmo Quest and learn about some of the fantastic art and science public outreach projects Pamela has in store for Cosmo Quest in the coming years!
Good news is great, isn’t it?
