Mayim Bialik Wants You To “Express Your Selfie”
The ‘Big Bang Theory’ actress and Texas Instruments are encouraging teachers and students to submit photos of themselves with their favorite TI technology.
Sadly, the summer is nearing an end. Kids are coming back from camp, families are returning from their annual vacations, and backyard BBQ’s are soon going to become a mere memory. The one exciting thing about summer coming to a close is that kids get new stuff! There’s nothing more exciting than a back-to-school shopping spree for new clothes and school supplies.
To celebrate the beginning of a new school year, Texas Instruments and ‘Big Bang Theory’ star Mayim Bialik have teamed up for a contest called ‘Express Your Selfie’. They are encouraging students and teachers to submit a selfie with their favorite Texas Instruments technology aka a graphing calculator.
The winner and his or her class will receive a classroom set of graphing calculators and a video-conference call, in class, with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) advocate, Bialik.
"I relied on my TI graphing calculator to gain a deeper understanding of abstract concepts in science and mathematics while earning my neuroscience degrees,” says actress and real-life neuroscientist, Bialik.
“Using the ‘selfie craze’ to capture students’ creativity and imagination will hopefully open their eyes to the captivating world of science and mathematics.”
From now through Sept. 21, 2014, anyone over the age of 13 can submit a selfie with their favorite TI technology on Twitter or Instagram, using the caption, “I make math/science….with TI.” Entrants must include the hashtag #tiselfiecontest.
