About Skype a Scientist

Skype a Scientist is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charity*! 

Google scientist, and you'll get a collection of images depicting how society sees us; white, male, socially awkward, with unkempt hair. Science has a PR problem. Skype a scientist is here to help by simply connecting scientists with the public! We want more people to say they have met a scientist and be able to replace that outdated image of hollywood scientists with real representations of the scientific community. 

We want to build trust in science in the public to get our society back on course for a more evidence-based decision making public. We believe that opening channels of communication with the public is the first step to achieving this goal.

Skype a scientist connects scientists with the public in 4 major ways
  1. We match classrooms with scientists for Q&A sessions
  2. We host Skype a Scientist Live, a Q&A series on youtube live with awesome science communicators
  3. We run Science Trivia at bars all over the Northeast US
  4. We have Skype a Scientist After Hours for Patrons! 

Skype a scientist has reached over 32,000 classrooms
We've recruited over 10000 scientists
We are in 70 countries, and every US state.

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

Goals
96% complete
Once I reach this goal, I can run this and other science communication activities full time after I graduate with my Ph.D.!

At this stage Skype a Scientist will be functional with one full-time staff member.
