Dear BBG Followers,

You’re following us; right?  You like us; right?

So, you will help us with a hashtag campaign; right? 

Here is what to do: Tweet or post something with #MyTopCollege is @Penn_State  because @Forbes will be watching and collecting them until July 31, 2014 and your tweet, post or photo may be published in Forbes Magazine. 

For example, you might say @Penn_State is #MyTopCollege because they blog awesome stuff about science, engineering, technology and math on Tumblr in a blog called Big Black Glasses. <www.bbglasses.tumblr.com>  Shout it out to @Forbes

Ok, shameless self-promotion over. Forgive us? ???

In this audio clip, Dr. Peter Wilf shares his love for travel, adventure, discovery that all came together for him after working as a jazz musician. Now he is traveling to Pakistan and other great countries in search of fossil finds that give clues to the past and future.

YOU THERE, yes YOU could be the people behind the science.

You know that; right?!

Lured by travel and solving mysteries that inform our future, unapologetic nerd and jazz rocker Dr. Peter Wilf found his way to paleobotany in his late 20s.

That’s a combo of paleontology (study of fossils of plants and animals) and botany (study of plants). Geology (study of physical structure and history of a planet) plays a big part in this, too. 

We’re glad he found his way here to Penn State teaching.

Rock on, Peter!
