The #SciFund Challenge is a crowdfunding effort for science. The second round ran during the month of May, 2012, and raised $100,345 for 75 scientific research projects, in diverse fields such as biology, astronomy, psychology, and chemistry.

Some basic information about this round of the challenge can be found at these posts on the #SciFund blog (includes analysis of some of the data here):



The social media data here were compiled from public sources (e.g., the RocketHub website, video hosting counts) as soon as possible after the completion of #SciFund (i.e., within hours after the last project closed).
