2009-Year of Science begins

It is officially the Year of Science, and if you have not checked out the Web site yet, take a few moments to see what's happening locally and virtually at http://www.yearofscience2009.org/home/. For example, our own governor Charlie Crist was the first in the nation to issue a proclamation on the Year of Science. Other interesting sections in the Web site include statements on the importance of scientist from scientists, reporters, teachers, authors, and presidents.

Some local events coming up are as follows:

St. Petersburg participants include the following:
  • U. S. Geological Survey-Florida Integrated Science Center
  • Science Center of Pinellas County
  • University of South Florida College of Marine Science
  • Suncoast Earth Force
