30 Days - Living in the Museum of Science & Industry (Chicago) @ 08:55 am

Tags: ,

The MSI is having a contest, looking for someone to live for a month inside the museum (October 20 to November 18, 2010). Live, eat and sleep there, unless they let you out for a few public appearances. Blog, tweet, vid, and photo your experiences. Pay is $10K, you can sleep in a submarine, and all the baby chicks you can eat at the incubator exhibit. Looks pretty sweet, and then I got to the part in the application where it asks "What experience do you have working with children?" And the thought of being surrounded by a milling crowd of nose-explorers and crumb-grabbers gave me the heebie jeebies. But maybe one of you will be more intrepid; it would be pretty neat.

They say they're equally open to scientific neophytes and scientific experts, but I would imagine they'd like someone to whom everything would be new and cool, who would act as a regular joe/jane ambassador to the outside world. But who knows?

That would be SO AWESOME!

But unless gamers count as kids, I don't think I've sufficient with-the-kiddies experience. ;)

ETA: actually, having looked at the application, I might give it a shot. What the hell... ;)

It's looking like I'll be unemployed then. I'm not sure about spending a month away from friends and family, though. If I lived in Chicago, though, this would be tempting.

Reminds of me of favorite children's book The Mixed up Files of Mrs. Basil Frankweiler
