cross posting from DM on Sb:
It is my favorite time of year for blog-related group action activities.
Welcome back to the science blogosphere's efforts to raise money to support classroom projects with Donor's Choose.
As always, the key consideration is that every little bit counts. If prior years are any judge, the grad students in my readership are unbelievably generous, given their limited incomes. Just sayin, PIs, just sayin.
Also, I've selected a bunch of projects for your consideration that caught my eye for undoubtedly random and personal reasons. If you don't see anything that catches your fancy, take a look through other bloggers' lists or search for yourself at the Donor's Choose site. No matter what you choose to support, kids win. And that means we all win.
Now, I must confess that I blew it this year. I was distracted working on some grant or other and blasted up my Donor's Choose challenge page (Science up the Schools 2010!) ahead of the official launch date for the competition between blog collectives/interests. My total bad. but then The Gam launched....and our new MortalBlogEnemies launched...and what was I gonna do? Now PZ has thrown down with his 8 billion pound commentariat.
Sorry Janet. I'm not having a good few weeks here....
