SCIENCE!   4 comments

Dr. Free-Ride points out a survey run by the National Academy of Sciences -> what science topics are important to you?

The blurb:

What topics in science, engineering, and medicine matter most to you? The National Academies are interested in developing useful and engaging print and web-based educational materials on the topics that you’d like to learn more about. They invite you to participate in a brief survey. You can find that survey here.

In the 2-minute survey you’ll be presented with a list of topics and asked to select the five that matter most to you. At the end, you can see how your answers compare with the results so far. And you can enter a drawing to receive a National Academies tote bag!

Let the National Academies know what topics you think they should focus on so they can be sure to provide you with materials that are informative and useful. Your participation is greatly appreciated.

Interestingly, my five responses rated 1, 2, 3, 4, and 6 in the top five responses (as reflected in the current survey results, shown at the end).  Does this mean that I’m in tune with what people want to know?  Or does this mean I’m susceptible to the blandishments of the Liberal Academic Conspiracy?

(that’s a joke, son).

  1. That’s weird. My “secondary uses for the appendix” wasn’t on the list…

  2. Oh…and Merry Christmas! See you on the other side for more fantastical nonsense…

  3. Gee, thanks for getting that song stuck in my head

  4. You are about to be removed from my blog roll!!! It’s nothing personal…I’m restarting for 2009 this Thursday. Were you at the top of the list in 2008? If not, here’s your chance to be. A single comment gets you on my blog roll. Keep commenting and you’ll stay at the top. Hope to see you in 2009!
