Science cheerleader
Darlene Cavalier is the founder of Science Cheerleader.com, a site that promotes the involvement of citizens in science and science-related policy featuring the Science Cheerleaders, current and former NFL and NBA cheerleaders-turned-scientists and engineers. The Science Cheerleaders perform at events across the nation to playfully challenge stereotypes, inspire the 3 million little cheerleaders in the U.S. to consider careers in science, math and engineering, and encourage "regular" people to tap their inner scientists and get involved in "citizen science" projects (research projects in need of volunteers). She is also the founder of ScienceForCitizens.net, a Web site, that connects everyday people to science through recreational activities as well as formal research.
Cavalier has held executive positions at Walt Disney Publishing and worked at Discover Magazine for more than a decade.
