Showing posts with the label the gaudie

Shuttle pilots, news and new stuff.

I have had a busy few weeks and due to some new things my blog may change slightly... I have been asked to become the 'real life PhD' blogger for - so I will be posting regular career type information on that blog, I will post the proper URL for this when I get it. I have also set up a science journalism society at the university, we have had some sucess this week with two articles being published in The Gaudie (student newspaper). Small but a start!! I wrote an article about a talk called 'Reaching for the stars'  which was part of TechFest in Aberdeen . A great science communication event with loads of interesting talks and other funstuff. I spent some time at TechFest at 'car boot science'  and it was great fun & extremely messy (lots of coke/mentos/vitamin tablets/rockets) !!  I thought I would share the article I wrote on my blog as unfortunately I do not think that the newspaper is online. I could have written lots more
