*COMPETITION TIME*

After another turbulent year of science, we want to hear from you! 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 fourth annual science writing competition!

Blog Birthday: Top 10 Articles

A Short Scientist is FOUR! To celebrate four years of articles, we will look back on the top ten posts from the last four years. I adore writing and creating these snippets of science, they are a creative release for me and let my brain breathe. I hope this year brings more doodling and science to communicate, especially after a very quiet writing period. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read, comment on, like or share my work, it really does mean the world, especially over the pandemic. This little blog has achieved more than I ever expected, and brings me so much joy.

Does Netflix Cost the Earth?

The internet. It has revolutionised communication and connection, enabled wider access to knowledge and opinions, and allows for the viewing and sharing of information in many different forms. In the UK alone, 46.6 million people use the internet daily, up from just 16.2 million in 2006. However, despite holding information in seemingly weightless spaces, such as "the cloud", the internet is far from a carbon neutral and clean infrastructure. What is the internet, how much does it contribute to climate change, and what can we do?

Fusion of the Future

Imagine a World where we could generate electricity, in a carbon-neutral, self-sustaining manor, using the same reactions that take place in the sun? Welcome to Nuclear Fusion. Here we will explore the difference between nuclear fusion and current nuclear power methods, and what the future holds for fusion.

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.

Blog Birthday: Top 10 Articles

A Short Scientist is THREE! To celebrate three years of articles, we will look back on the top ten posts from the last three years. I adore writing and creating these snippets of science, they are a creative release for me and let my brain breathe. I hope the next year brings more doodling and science to communicate. Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to read, comment on, like or share my work, it really does mean the world, especially in a pandemic.

The Eden Project: Not just a Garden

During our UK roadtrip we were able to make a stop at the Eden Project, somewhere I've wanted to visit for a long time. As well as being a very large set of greenhouses, the Eden Project offers social and environmental benefits, opportunities for outreach and a platform for science. While we're all in lockdown, I'll take you on a trip through the Eden Project.
