Q:Where are you going to uni? Also you need to change your disclaimer where it says you're a "high schooler" :)
Binghamton University, about am hour from Cornell and 3ish from NYC.
Right! I gotta change that. I’m an adult going to uni. That’s so weird.
I’m moving into university tomorrow! Super exciting. I have a cool group of friends most of whom are science majors!
I know I haven’t been very active mainly because of life and school and work. I’ll update periodically though. (Hello to the random 50 followers I got this week.) I’ll be tweeting a lot more this weekend so check me out at thomsight on Twitter.
At SciNote, we believe that science shouldn’t just be reading about the ideas of people with PhDs and Nobel Prizes. We believe that science is an active process of asking questions and finding answers.
That’s why we, at SciNote, want to hear from you. We want to ponder the interesting questions you pose and get excited with you over the cool science you see in your world.
SciNote will feature the best of the Tumblr science community, and we will compile and publish the top posts from every year in the form of a magazine available both digitally and in print. Think of SciNote magazine as the Tumblr science magazine.
We hope to celebrate our launch by featuring some of the coolest science from around Tumblr. So before we launch SciNote, we would like to collect 25 science posts and/or questions from you, including:
- the most interesting science news you have come across
- questions you’ve always wanted to ask
- fascinating facts that you’ve learned
- pictures of nature and/or science that you’ve taken
- cool research that you’ve participated in
- any other science-related thing you’d like to tell us!
- Submit posts or ask questions to be featured on our blog and for an opportunity to be published in SciNote magazine.
- Follow our blog at SciNote.org.
- Read more about our project here.
- If you’re interested, apply to join our staff here.
- Reblog this post so that we can collect 25 posts and launch our project as soon as possible!
Thank you all and happy science!
This looks really awesome. Tumblr science community making science more accessible to the public! You go, friends. You go.
Science Needs Women:
For Women in Science; the L’Oreal Foundation
I’m sharing this video on any platform I can because when I first found it last week it had something like 1,400 views, but it’s the most beautifully produced and succinctly narrated video addressing some of the most complicated issues facing women in STE(A)M fields I’ve found yet.
I’m sharing this for every time I’m called a “feminazi.”
…for every time I’m told that my concerns aren’t valid, our that our issues are imagined.
…for every time I hear “women just don’t like science,” or worse - “women just aren’t good at science.”
…for every time we’re told that we can have a family or a career, but not both - and for every time we feel like we have to decide between the two.
…and because we need more women mentors in these fields to stand up for issues that are not “women’s issues” - these are people issues that affect our collective society as a whole.
The women in this video are my heroes and they should be your heroes, too.
Science needs women.
Q:THOMAS HOW DO YOU DRAW THE LINES
so what you do is hold the piece of chalk like a cigarette between your index and middle fingers. then as you make the line, you hold down the end with your thumb and have the chalk at a 90 degree angle to the board. basically that and the friction with the board will make the chalk vibrate, going on and off the board giving you awesome dotted lines. it’s the same mechanism as nails on a chalk board making that really terrible screeching.
