If anyone's in a playful mood, come drop by and add stanzas for your favorite scientists. (Alphabetical order optional.) Odd letters (1st, 3rd, etc.) are 5-7-5, even 7-7.

Speaking of scientists past and present, I'm doing a neat little side project at work where I find and evocatively write up a short quote about science or science culture (or 'relevant to science education') every two weeks or so on the little whiteboard by my desk.

I'd love to feature more quotes from scientists of color, past or present, and/or scientists who are women — any recommendations? So far I've done quotes from Rosalind Franklin, Marie Curie, Maria Mitchell, Siddhartha Mukherjee re: Rudlof Virchow, Stephan Jay Gould, Atul Gawande, and Mario Livio (see all at tumblr).



[Text: “We yearn for frictionless, technological solutions. But people talking to people is still the way norms and standards change.”—Atul Gawande]

This week’s quote comes from Atul Gawande’s article ‘Slow Ideas' (New Yorker, July 23rd 2013), which I highly recommend. For more about the author, check out Atul Gawande’s website. Photo & handwriting above are mine.



Admins, might I trouble you for a 'science history' or 'history of science' tag of some kind? Many thanks!
