Science Cheerleader, 76ers and George Mason University present…

This morning, we officially unveil the Brain Makeover project in our quest to diminish the gap between science and society. (Check out George Mason University’s sweet announcement on their homepage.)

Watch the videos of the 76ers cheerleaders, read the accompanying descriptions by GMU’s Professor Trefil, then  take the quiz to see how you stack up against others when it comes to understanding how our universe works. Pass the quiz and you’ve scored yourself a very cheeky “I’m a science literate!” certificate.
Then, find out how you can apply your science knowledge and get involved in research projects and federal policy discussions.
Step one: give your brain a makeover. Get started!
