Science Cheerleaders on The Today Show

Make no mistake: the Science Cheerleaders are getting attention. In addition to their previous appearances with the public, they've appeared in stories across a wide range of media (try to think of another cheerleading squad that appears on ESPN, CNN, and The Chronicle of Higher Education!). Their latest appearance? The Today Show on Friday morning, September 21! You can watch the video on the Science Cheerleader site here. It's a great story, told without snark or irony, making it well worth the wait (some of the footage was shot in April!).

I was on hand during the Science & Engineering Festival, manning the booth while the SciCheers did their cool science cheer thing. It's good to be the gofer, but I've got to lose some weight if I'm going to continue wearing the SciCheer shirts!

Hanging out at the SciCheer booth with Erin (degrees in biology and psychology, with a Ph.D. and Master's degree in the works) and Allison (degrees in chemistry and biology).

The 2012 Science Cheerleader squad with their fearless gopher. Yes, folks, that's a real job, and no, you can't have it.
