Intermission… I’m a Scientist: In the Zone!
Just a quick note to mention that I’ve been taking part in an Olympic-themed I’m a Scientist: Get me out of here! event this week, an X-factor style science communication competition being run by the folks over at the Wellcome Trust. It’s 10 weeks of questions and live chats from students around the country, who can ask any and all questions about how the mind and body work, as well as general sciencey sorts of stuff. If you’re a scientist involved in sports, psychology, or movement science, then they’re still looking for participants! I’ve just come to the end of my first week, and it’s been pretty intense, but absolutely great fun. Here are some of my favourite questions from the week:
who is your favourite scientist? << and I really meant my answer about Gru for that one.
Normal service will resume next week. In the meantime, why don’t you check out the new Nature Network blog from one of last year’s I’m a Scientist winners, Suzi Gage?
