All Aboard for the June Scientiae!

All month the Scientiae train has been loading at platform 37.7*, and now we’re pulling out of the station on a wonderful journey on the rails. I’m picturing a Harry Potter-esque train running through the Scottish countryside, complete with cozy compartments and carts full of goodies, comforting tea, and chocolate frogs.** But most importantly, this…

Reminder of the June Scientiae

Just a quick reminder that the June Scientiae theme is “moving forward” and we’re looking for posts about the how and why your science, work, and life are moving forward. Of course, other topics are welcome as well. Write your entries and get them in by midnight UTC on May 30th, and I’ll get them…

Alice and I are teaming up to host the June edition of Scientiae, the carnival by, for, and about women in science, engineering, technology, and math. As is the norm for the monthly Scientiae carnival, I get to choose a theme to help inspire and unite you all to write posts, though submissions on any…

Luckily, there is a new Scientiae!

ScienceWoman and I are either approaching or inhabiting grading jail, I think. I’m working on grading 30 teams’ first-year design projects where teams of 4 had to design a procedure to calculate the energy footprint of a building/system on campus (related to this post). On Friday, we summed up all the systems (overlooking that there…

Call for posts for May Scientiae!

Katharine Haxton over at Endless Possibilities 2.0 on the Nature Network is stepping into another Scientiae hosting breech (yikes!) and will be hosting the May Scientiae, to be posted May 1. She’s suggested “A Snapshot” as the theme — a blog timecapsule for yourself, marking May 2009. Get your posts in by April 30!

And someone needs to get organized and follow up on whoever said they might be interested in hosting May… let me know if you would be willing to serve as backup and I…

Update April 7: GrrlScientist has decided to change the name to “Scientia Pro Publica,” science for the people. Thanks to folks who shared ideas with her!! ———————- GrrlScientist has decided to revive the Tangled Bank carnival under a new name: Scientia. While a very apt name indeed, commenters (not me) have pointed out the similarity…

A saga of two prelims

For this month’s Scientiae, Candid Engineer has asked for stories about overcoming challenges. ScienceWoman has already contributed an awesome story to the Diversity in Science carnival, but I think it does for Scientiae, too. What about my own story?

Sunday night seductions

Liberal Arts Lady has ably hosted another fantastic edition of Scientiae. Head over there for some fantastic stories of role models and mentors, as well as some reminders that we have a ways to go before all aspiring scientists can find someone who looks like them. I also wanted to draw your attention to an…
