There is only one episode of Science Teaching Tips remaining! There is no more funding to continue producing this podcast. If you're interested in seeing this continue, please let me know (and perhaps I can scrape together some funding). If you have a suggestion of where we might find some dollars to keep producing this, please, do tell! It's been a lot of fun and we have a lot of subscribers, I'd love to keep doing this.
