Gone are the days of searching for a good-willed and trustworthy passerby to ask to take a photo of you and your friend. (Which has greatly decreased overall camera theft! )
No more sitting still while your Grandma took your picture. Well, I guess we still have to do that..
Thank you technology, for allowing us to turn the camera face around to our selves and take …YES, you know what I’m talking about… The Selfie.
It seems everywhere you look, someone it taking a Selfie. If you look over your shoulder, the girl who sits next to you at work is probably taking a selfie right now.
You find Selfies splashed on Facebook walls and Twitter feeds. They are filling up your Snap Chats, and even being sung about on your radio! Maybe, you even see them on our website?!? (Hint, Hint)
So do you embrace the trend, or run away screaming?
No. Stop that… come back here! We want you to embrace the selfie. Love your selfie.
Why, you ask? Well, because we’d like to ask a favor.
I see you hesitantly nodding in agreement… you know this will be fun! Ok, ready for the deets? Here is what we want you to do:
Grab your favorite Steve Spangler Science experiment. Did you find the one that makes you smile the biggest? Good! Now, get your trusty smart phone in hand, because…
WE WANT TO SEE YOUR BEST SCIENCE SELFIE!
That’s right! Get colorful, get geyser soaked, slime it up, wear growing gators as a mustache or whatever your heart desires. Just make sure your selfie makes you smile!
Here are some examples:
