I've been writing stories on demand for kids on a mechanical typewriter for years, and I've been using the stories as a way to teach STEM concepts. Lately I've begun filming and animating my interactions and the stories.

A Podcast about the misadventures and victories of a life in the sciences. As told and lived by Graduate Students. We mimic the format of This American Life (more or less) to chronicle the crazy stories and hijinks of current and former graduate students via interviews.

IGNITE aims to highlight women and girls working in STEM in various ways - as developers, artists, activists, community organisers, educators, and much more. We're also collecting #BeTheSpark stories on how you got interested in STEM, so if you have a story to share please contribute!
Google+ isn't a ghost town anymore: populate your circles with Science! I co-curate Science on Google+: A Public Database, which among other things is a database of more than 600 different scientists, science teachers, and science writers active on Google+. We also host hangouts and provide a forum for asking science questions and finding collaborators among scientists on Google+. We also work closely with (and contribute to) two other science pages - STEM Women on Google+ and Science Sunday.
