My Life as a Science Promoter

Austin’s favorite happy hour for the science-loving community will have a visitor from Chicago. On December 14, I will be in Austin to meet Joe Hanson (@jtotheizzoe and creator of It’s OK To Be Smart) while attending Science in the Pub–a place for fans of science from all walks of life, be they professional scientists or amateur admirers, to gather for a bit of socializing and entertainment. My goal is to learn from the organizers of Science in the Pub and bring the brand to Chicago.

After driving about 1200 miles through the beautiful American midwest landscape, I will use my time wisely. While I’m in Austin, as a Science Promoter, it’s my job to pack as much science into my visit as possible. As of right now, I plan to visit the Texas Natural Science Center, the Banned, Burned, Seized, and Censored exhibit in the Harry Ransom Center, and the InnerSpace Cavern. Pictures, videos and journal entries will be posted daily on this blog as part of my Tom Travels series of posts. Last year Tom Travels visited 13 states, here’s one of my favorite pictures from the 2010 adventure, taken in Apache Junction, Arizona:
