Auctions for Science: Wonder Woman Shoes & Vintage Science Textbooks

Cross-posted with Skepchick Events.

This week’s auctions feature donations from our very own DrRubidium and Will, both of whom will be at SkepchickCon July 4th weekend in Minneapolis. In addition to science activities and salons in the Skepchick Space Lab, here’s a taste of some of the panels they’ll be on:

Getting Away with Murder
Breaking Bad Science
Song of Ice and Fire and SCIENCE!
and more, including a workshop in Connie’s Quantum Sandbox: Secret Agent 101: Invisible Ink

Good Food, Bad Food
Science of Group Differences
Bullying and the Bystander

See the full schedule for Skepchick Network speakers and guests here, and our complete list of guests here.

I just wanted to give you a small sampling of what we’re raising money for before getting into the auctions themselves. So without further ado, we have



Handmade by DrRubidium using a pair of size 11 women’s Mossimo flats as the base. She only wore them a couple of times, so they could really use a good home. Super up your feet AND support science. Click here to see the auction and place a bid.

Plus, from Will, textbooks from the Wayback Machine of physics (1984) and chemistry (1975), perfect collectibles for science history buffs:

Modern Physics - Cover

Chemistry - Cover

All auctions end next Tuesday, June 17, between 9:30pm and 9:40pm Eastern.

We do all this science, skepticism, and social justice outreach and education on our own dime. We do not get a cut of ticket sales or charge anything extra for what we offer. We do not profit. At all. This is why we need your help.

If these auctions are not your thing but you still want to help us raise money for science activity supplies and informational materials, please click the image below to make a Paypal donation (or Paypal directly to [email protected]). Even a single dollar helps us out. Thanks so much.
