THANK YOU for visiting our Patreon page! We have found a way to make Skype a Scientist a lean, mean, science communication machine, but to grow beyond where we are, we need your support! 

Skype a scientist has reached over 11,000 classrooms
We've recruited over 4000 scientists
We are in 40 countries, and every US state.

Skype a scientist is a huge venture that takes time, server space, and serious organizational acrobatics from both e-mail answering machine/squid scientist Sarah McAnulty and the matching program written by talented and unpaid bioinformatician David Jenkins. We also need to pay for web hosting for our matching confirmation program, among other small things. One of our goals is to increase advertising to places that we think our program will do the most good- in rural and underserved areas. 

This initiative has gone farther than we ever thought possible in January 2017, and we want to keep the momentum going! Please help us by becoming a patron <3
Tiers
Every little bit helps
$1 or more per month 53 patrons
I get it, you're on a budget- so am I!  But every little bit helps people, so even $1/month can help support this program. 
SciComm Squidlets
$5 or more per month 46 patrons
You will have the undying appreciation of Sarah McAnulty and knowledge that you're helping facilitate a program that gets scientists to places scientists rarely go (and some places they often do).
Giant Pacific Octopus
$10 or more per month 13 patrons
Undying appreciation as above, AND once a month I will post a funny or interesting question that has been asked during a Skype a Scientist session. You will have access to those premium videos  😎
Awesome Architeuthis
$20 or more per month 5 of 10 patrons
Undying appreciation, access to videos, AND once every 3 months at this tier I will mail you a postcard with a squid fact. 
Communication Colossal Squid
$50 or more per month 1 of 5 patrons
There is no larger cephalopod than the colossal squid. Likewise, there is no greater reward than this tier. With this tier you get a PERSONAL skype session with a scientist that works on something of your choosing. You've always wanted to know about bees? We gotchu. Wanted to know about squid? Well obviously, you'll be talking to me, Sarah McAnulty. Always wanted to know about termites? No problem, we can get you that. 
Goals
$536 of $1,000 per month
We could get our advertising out to more classes and hire part-time help for running the program!
