A Science Media Centre Internship

It is more important than ever to communicate science effectively. We must ensure accurate and evidence-based information about research is distributed through the media, particularly on controversial and headline news where most misinformation can occur. Here, I will give you a background to the Science Media Centre (SMC) and my internship opportunity with them.

*COMPETITION TIME*

After a turbulent year of science, we want to hear from you! Specifically our younger cohort. If you are between 10-18 years old, this one's for you. Here at A Short Scientist, we want to inspire younger generations to find a love for science. Therefore, over the month of February we're running our third annual science writing competition!!

Bigger Questions: Is Time Real?

To many, time is a way of telling us when to do things or expect things to be done: when to meet, when to eat, when to sleep, but what is the scientific definition of time? One source defines it as the "indefinite and continuous duration...in which events succeed one another", meaning the past is the past and the future will always come after, a linear perception. However, what if time isn't linear and our perception is wrong? Strap in.

*COMPETITION TIME*

After another year of inundating you with the latest science, we want to hear from you! Specifically, our younger cohort. If you are between 10-18 years old, this one's for you. Here at A Short Scientist, we want to inspire younger generations to find a love for science therefore, over the month of February we're running a science writing competition!

Equations of Love

There are plenty of books, apps, self-help guides, and "gurus" who claim they can help you find your true love. However, can science help us find "the one"? Are there reasons for the saying "opposites attract"? Science has even investigated whether or not smell plays a part in finding love. What else have we investigated and discovered about relationships?
