We all love science

Following on from Olivia’s post about her research project, I am also doing a science-themed post this week in the spirit of British Science Week.

Having a ball

Freshers year and termly Hall Balls are sadly far behind me, so when the Science Ball came swinging around, an event I missed in first year, I cleared my schedule and began to get very excited. It’s nice to climb out of your usual clothes, the jeans, the chinos, the hoodies and jumpers and don …

But its cold, snow is forecast again this week (I know, I thought we were in the clear too), …
