In case you didn’t know it, Science Week is on this week and they’ve gone all blogger friendly by having a competition each day for the rest of the week.
Here’s their spiel:
This year Science Week Ireland explores this theme and illustrates just how much science surrounds us every day. We are constantly surrounded by science, technology and engineering in the modern world. We are woken by talking alarm clocks, dress in man-made fibres, check the TV weather, listen to radio news or traffic reports, use electricity to make our breakfast. And all that is before we have even left the house.
We would like you to tell us a little bit about the role science plays in your everyday lives. We are inviting you to answer each of the following questions:
- Tuesday – Q What was the favourite invention from your childhood?
- Wednesday – Q What invention do you want to see most in the future?
- Thursday – Q Whatâ€™s the next gadget that you want to buy?
- Friday – Q Which invention has helped you most with your working life?
- Saturday – Q In your opinion what was the best invention in 2007?
Easy pickings really! C’mon and get blogging. Link to the Science Week website so they can track entries or link back here. I’m not sure will Science Week allow this, but if people read this blog, don’t have their own blog but want to contribute, I’ll happily allow them to guest post here. I’ll check with the Science Week folks about this.
