Hot Cocoa to Help Light the Night

By Anne Sauer. Originally posted on Mad Art Lab. Congratulations to the Skepchick team for raising over $2,500 for Light the Night and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society! I promised to create a warm non-alcoholic beverage in honor of this achievement. However, I’m so proud of you all that I decided to make two recipes, one with booze and one without! Both are variations on hot cocoa, and I ... »

VIDEO: Skepticism 101 Panel, #SkepchickCon

Here’s another informative and funny panel video and transcript from SkepchickCon, the science and skepticism track at CONvergence. Sci-fi/fantasy cons are perfect for science and skepticism education and outreach because they attract so many people with an interest in science who simply don’t know that much about skepticism. We also attract people from the large skeptical community in... »

Giveaways? Prizes? Raffles? It Must Be Time for Skepticon!

Giveaways? Prizes? Raffles? It Must Be Time for Skepticon!

The legendary Skepticon is nigh. As always, the speaker roster is impressive and includes our very own Debbie and Rebecca. In addition, Rebecca and I will be participating in the Godless Perverts Story Hour. While going to it might be free from registration costs, running such a summit of awesome heathenishness isn’t free. With just over a month left, Skepticon is about 2/3 of its way to its... »

Achievement Unlocked: $2,500 for Cancer Treatment & Research

We’ve reached more than $2,500 in our fundraising for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society thanks to you generous, good-hearted people, who are also likely to be geniuses and amazing dancers. This means we’re all in for a treat from Mad Art Lab’s Anne Sauer, who promised to create a warm nonalcoholic beverage recipe to share with us once we hit the $2,500 mark. She is working away on it and will ha... »

EVENTS! Sex, Science & Skepchicks

EVENTS! Sex, Science & Skepchicks

It’s true. We are leaving our super secret Skepchick Headquarters once again this month to venture out to events in Sacramento, Seattle, and Akron. (Way to ruin the alliteration, Akron.) UPDATE: It’s okay, Akron. Boulder has stepped in so you won’t feel so alone. I forgot about the Boulder Science Festival next weekend (Oct. 12 and 13), the one that Amy is sending some folks to. ... »

Light the Night Superheros, Part 1

Light the Night Superheros, Part 1

First, you wonderful people have helped us raise more than $2,300 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, as part of our virtual Light the Night Team through Foundation Beyond Belief. This means we are less than $200 away from Anne Sauer making a custom warm drink for us! We are still shooting for at least $10,001, if not the $20,000 Todd Stiefel has dared us to raise. To donate or join our team,... »

Todd Stiefel Fuels the Skepchick/FtB Rivalry

Todd Stiefel Fuels the Skepchick/FtB Rivalry

Todd Stiefel, whose Stiefel Freethought Foundation is providing matching funds for money raised by Foundation Beyond Belief Light the Night teams, is now offering a dare of his own if either Skepchick or Freethought Blogs raises $20,000 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. He’ll shave his hair into a mohawk, and the team that gets to twenty grand first gets to choose the color. Click her... »

VIDEO: Science Resources for Children panel, #SkepchickCon

This panel is packed with awesome suggestions for science books, websites, videos, and more that you don’t need to be a parent to enjoy. Unfortunately, there was a glitch with the recording, so it starts a bit late, although I don’t think the specific resources discussion had started yet. You might want to have a document open where you can copy and paste the resources from the transcr... »
