Final Auctions for Science: Furiosa Belt Crest, Collectibles, Science Art, and More!

This is the last set of auctions to raise money for SkepchickCon, the Skepchick-hosted events at CONvergence, including science activities, demos, salons, panels, and more.

You can see the Skepchick schedule here, and the full CONvergence schedule here. The CONvergence theme this year is dystopia, which means we’ll be decking out the Skepchick Space Lab in kind.

In the Skepchick EVIL Space Lab, we’ll be running salons and activities all day every day but Sunday, including hovercrafts, DNA extraction, electromagnets, chromatography, and much, much more.

These auctions help us pay for supplies, informational materials, room rental, travel expenses, and everything related to the Skepchick-sponsored events. Our Space Lab events are extras that we bring to the con, so we pay for them ourselves. We do not get any part of the CON ticket sales.

So please take a look at our auctions or consider donating directly to the science outreach and education we do at CONvergence.
