#FancyScienceShared was hosted by Fancy Comma, LLC and The Shared Microscope from Oct. 5-12, 2020 (Nobel Prize Week, 2020). The goal of the free, virtual (blog and social media) event was to celebrate scientific achievement and science communication.

This virtual (blog and social media) event will:
