    Above, plus now think of your favorite pass time. Have you ever wondered whether genes affect some aspect of your hobby? I’ll cut through the jargon and write a plain-language report on my blog about how genes affect whatever you’re interested in. I'll also give a 30 minute talk by Skype on the topic to you and your friends, class, or whoever!

    Above, plus do you know a kid with a budding interest in science? Maybe you're just a kid at heart? What better way to get your scientific juices flowing than by squeezing a hand-knitted double helix (see picture)! The design is adapted with permission from a pattern that is no longer in production by Limited supply; get it while you can!

    Above, plus think about a cause you really believe in. What idea, group, or issue do you care strongly about? We can find out if genes play a role in that belief or attitude! I’ll work with you to create a set of measures about whatever attitude or belief you’re interested in and include it as part of my study. You will be acknowledged as a key supporter in the published paper on that topic!
