The Jewish holiday season is upon us, and that means lots of days off and not many new science articles. In fact, we have a stockpile of science stories waiting for our new website, but glitches and the need for a Hebrew site have been holding things up. In the meantime, here is a video from the Animix international comics, animation and caricature festival held in August in Tel Aviv, which featured Nano Comics workshops for kids with scientists and various Israeli comics illustrators.
The Nano Comics, themselves, will appear on the new website, should it ever go live.
Coming up, at the end of this month will be Researcher's Night, an event that takes place in the European Union and all over Israel in which the public comes to tour labs and hear popular science lectures. Over the week-long Sukkoth holiday in the beginning of October, the Science Festival -- a two-day extravaganza of hands-on science including everything from liquid nitrogen ice cream and an egg-drop contest to panel discussions and performances will be open to the public.
