Shout out to the Science Cheerleader on her Emmy win!
Congratulations to my friend and colleague, Darlene Cavalier, the "Science Cheerleader" for her role in winning a Sports Emmy for the “Science of NFL Football” series, produced by NBC Learn, NBC Sports and the National Science Foundation in partnership with Science Cheerleader and the NFL.
The Sports Emmy from the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences went for Outstanding New Approaches to Sports Programming.
Other cheerleader/scientists introduce each of the 10 episodes in the series.
Darlene is a scientist and a former cheerleader for the Philadelphia 76ers. She and I serve on the COPUS Core team to promote better public engagement in science.
