Cool like Chlorophyll

We wanted to share a little bit of science wisdom with all you kids (and adults) out there. Remember that nobody is perfect...not even chlorophyll. They might seem like they are good at everything, but everyone has their own struggles. So if you love to do something, work hard and persevere - even when you feel inadequate. Chances are you have a skill or character that person wishes they had, too.

We're Starting an Awkward Voting Campaign!



Hey science fans! We are only a week away before the voting closes for SXSWedu so we are going to try something...awkward. As many of you know, we really want to take the Amoeba Sisters to SXSWedu next year so we can show educators how to make videos like ours and how to get their students involved in the process. The problem is that 30% of the decision is based off voting, and we are competing with some humongous names. We have awkwardly been asking everyone we meet for help, but now we need YOUR help!


So here’s our challenge to you: be an awkward turtle with us. Each day on Facebook we will be posting a series of seven seriously awkward ways to ask others to vote for us. If one of them makes you smile, please share it with your friends and encourage them to vote! So go ahead and start ‘poking’ those old high school friends, stirring up weird conversations with coworkers, and making strangers extremely uncomfortable by breaking social norms! Channel your inner awkward turtle!


Please Vote! http://www.amoebasisters.com/send-us-to-sxsw-edu.html

Dr. Aloe Vera

Oh my gosh, an update! We're highlighting the awesomeness of plants, like aloe vera! When Pinky and I were kids, we put aloe vera on EVERYTHING. Paper cut? Aloe vera. Sunburn? Aloe vera. Bruise? Aloe vera. Bad day? Aloe vera. We pretty much thought that aloe vera was some kind of ointment of the gods. So, maybe it can't help bruises and bad days, but aloe vera is known for its soothing and properties as far back as ancient Egypt! In fact, they called it the plant of immortality, so maybe Pinky and I weren't too far off with our imaginative play. We challenge you to find some modern products that use aloe vera!
