We support the NGO CodeMakers in South Africa, they have created a cool project - www.superscientists.org - in which living scientists are drawn as superheroes and turned into trading cards, posters, activity books and more

We have a few opportunities to help them
1. Help research important dates in STEM in Africa to help them develop a calendar of STEM dates
2. Help research direct mail, postcard solutions to help create a way of getting SuperScientists to young people in the USA
3. Write articles on scientific techniques or scientists

It's a great project with all sorts of interest already. See more on social media @scisuperheroes
