National Science Foundation is Calling All Geeks for Halloween!

Get out your glue guns!

The National Science Foundation just posted this on their Facebook page:

Halloween is approaching and we bet many of you are combining your love of science with creative costuming. If you’ve created a science-themed Halloween get-up (past Halloweens or present) share your photo via Flickr with the tag “nsfsciencecostumes.” In the caption, include a brief description of the science facts behind your costume!

While cosplay and sci-fi costumes are great, NSF is specifically looking for nonfiction, hard science costumes. Just imagine: Schrodinger’s Cat, Euclid, or string-theory as costumes… I love it!

Looking for ideas? I really enjoyed looking at all of these science-themed costumes.  And, hey! If you’re already uploading a picture to flickr, don’t forget to post the shot to GeekMom’s group, as well.

Have a hard-science costume idea to share? Open-source it in the comments!

The GeekMom blog is captained by Jenny Bristol and Corrina Lawson, and supported by a brilliant team of writers. Since launching in 2010, we’ve created a robust community of writers, readers, and media geeks, dedicated to the vision of creating a smart, savvy, social online experience for geek parents everywhere.
