Brandeis Undergrad chooses Science Museum over the Dorms

…but the housing lottery is a lot more competitive!

Alex Dainis, an undergraduate student in the Garrity Lab, has made it to the final five of over one-thousand people competing to spend an entire month living in the Chicago Museum of Science.  Her responsibilities will include blogging, tweeting, plus getting her typing hands dirty doing science demonstrations– ultimately communicating science to the public using diverse media.  Alex comes well-equipped with a double major in film and biology, and wants to use her expertise to shatter (nay, “DESTROY”)  stereotypes regarding both science and scientists.

So please take a moment to vote for Alex, and help her help Science make friends with the public!

See coverage of the competition on and Huffington Post here and here, respectively.

Congratulations, Alex!
