2020 City of East Lansing Science-Art Pieces
Chelsie was commissioned by the City of East Lansing to create science-art at Valley Court Park. The pieces represent how science is everywhere and were created by her and her co-host for The Sci-Files, Daniel Puentes. The sidewalk art can be seen there. The art was also featured in a news piece by WILX.
Chelsie and her mother Annie Boodoo have come together to create the business “Shaping Curiosity” to inspire curiosity in science among all ages through art. They will be creating public science art pieces that are family-friendly, meant to spark curiosity from the viewers while making science more accessible! More info will be available soon.

2019 Live Science Art Show with "Physics Girl" Dianna Cowern
Nearly 500 people attended a live-science art show at the Wharton Center on Oct. 19, 2019 featuring YouTube science communicator “Physics Girl” Dianna Cowern. The crowd included grade-school students, teachers, parents, college students, professors and scientists. This was an amazing experience where Chelsie had the opportunity not only to meet Dianna but to also do things with her on stage.

Chelsie brewed a beer at Saugatuck Brewing Company with her co-host Daniel Puentes. The beer “Atomic Ale” was released was on Oct 19, 2019 at The Grid Bar/Arcade. While people drank the beer they were able to listen to short science talks or play games. Past interviewees from The Sci-Files gave five-minute rundowns on their latest research findings, which updated people who heard their episodes. Guests at the event also had the opportunity to play arcade games with the scientists at The Grid. Prizes were donated by Impact 89 FM and Astronomy on Tap, which is an informal presentation series by astronomers held inside local bars.
