In my web meanderings, I’ve come across a club I think Laura and I should join: the Order of the Science Scouts of Exemplary Repute and Above Average Physique. More or less a gang of scientists—profs and students—at UBC, who have founded a growing collective to network, discuss science communication, socialize, and drink, not necessarily in order of importance. They preach the Ã¢â‚¬Å“truthÃ¢â‚¬Â. And they have some really nifty badges, as shown on their home page. (And yes, they have a group on Facebook.)
By way of our education and our books, Laura and I qualify for a few of them badges already. Heck, if you are reading this, you probably qualify for the tadpole badge yourself. And if we just upped the science content of this blog a bit, another one could be ours. Not sure I want the monkey one though.
