Can A Film Save The Oceans?
If legendary oceanographer, Dr. Sylvia Earle, has anything to do with it, the Ocean Film Challenge will do just that.
How we treat the oceans in the next 10 years will determine the fate of our planet for the next 10,000 years. There is no other planet. No water anywhere else. We have to save this.
In support of Dr. Sylvia Earle, the Ocean Film Challenge kicks off Blue Out Day, a massive initiative to move a billion people to act in support of the ocean on June 8, also known … READ MORE

When I was a child in elementary school back in Italy, I was often sick and had to stay home from school for a few days at a time. Pneumonia – you know, that sort of thing. That gives you a lot of time to think and plan for disasters.
When I was a little better, but not well enough to go to school, my mom would entertain me by letting me basically destroy the apartment as I wished with all sorts of experiments.
Also, lots … READ MORE
Brooke Medley, PhD
Research Scientist, Cryospheric Sciences Lab, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center
We reached out to Brooke Medley immediately after seeing her and her work featured in the Great Big Story short film Operation Ice: Melting the Heart of Man. The film provides background on Greenland’s melting glaciers and how Brooke and her team of scientists from NASA’s Operation IceBridge are studying the global impacts of that reality.
Brooke’s research is focused on understanding how our planet’s ice sheets are changing to help quantify their role in sea-level rise. Specifically, she uses airborne and field measurements of snowfall … READ MORE
For the last month, we’ve been building up to Feb 11th International Women & Girls in Science Day, we have been connecting with some amazing Women in Science. When girls are able to not only imagine, but literally see others like themselves in a STEM career and are encouraged, we know they are more likely to pursue and stick with STEM subjects in school. That’s why here at Raising Nerd, we wanted to share stories of REAL women in Science. From failures, to perseverance, to bravery…these women are truly inspirational and are helping pave the way for future … READ MORE
