My Own #SciFund Challenge Motivation

document Crowdfunding
Summary Tim Bonebrake is a SciFund Challenge participant. He is an ecologist and a postdoc at UC Riverside. His motivation for trying out #SciFund was to put some effort into connecting with the public. A grant to the National Science Foundation (NSF) requires this as well of course.
Description Mr. Bonebrake is excited that people might be getting involved with his research by supporting it but if nobody decides to contribute funds he won’t be terribly disappointed. But his point is, this isn’t about the money. This is about getting some eyes on his research and hoping people (my parents for example) might get something from a short three minute science video that they wouldn’t get from traditional sources of scientific communication.
