It’s a new year, and that means it’s time to start getting excited about another SkepchickCon! As you’ll remember, last year was pretty sweet, what with our Science Salons, our interactive Sandbox activities, our panels and our amazing guests! If you for some reason don’t remember (*cough* Buzzed Aldrins *cough*), you can check out some of last year’s photos at the SkepchickCon website.
As you know, with great partying and science outreach comes great fundraising efforts, and those efforts start today! We are very proud to announce that we have a brand new and exciting fundraiser to kick off 2015. To help us raise money for this year’s SkepchickCon, we’d like to introduce our fundraising partner, Boutique Academia.

They have necklaces, bracelets, scarves, t-shirts, tote bags, tie bars, rings, cuff links, earrings and belts!
