Pharma Web Watcher: Who/What Are "The Science Cheerleaders?"

According to their website, The Science Cheerleaders are professional cheerleaders pursuing science careers who playfully challenge stereotypes, turn everyone onto science by encouraging participation in citizen science activities, and inspire young women to consider careers in science, technology, engineering and math.

Apparently, there are more than 175 current and former professional cheerleaders from the NFL, NBA, and other pro sports leagues, pursing science and engineering careers make up the Science Cheerleaders. 

I was never really a fan of cheerleading, but I think I love this idea, even if I thought this website was a joke for the first five minutes I was on it.
