CosmoQuest at Balticon

May 22, 2014 | Uncategorized


We’re on our way to Baltimore, Maryland, today to take our citizen science project to Balticon 48! Will you be the area? Are you attended the con? We’d love to see you! CosmoQuest will have a fan table all four days of the convention. I’ll update with our location once I know it. (Update: We were in the main hallway so it’s quite hard to miss!)

You can also see Pamela Gay or Nicole Gugliucci on various panels on the Science, Writing, and New Media Tracks. Here is where we’ll be over the course of the Con (schedule still subject to change!)
