Well, the inaugural Northern Ireland Science Festival (@niscifest, #niscifest) is in full swing! As part of the programme, we've had the NI Final of the wonderful international FameLab competition - a chance for scientists, engineers and medics to crawl out from our daily grind and regale a venue full of slightly tipsy but highly enthusiastic punters with three concentrated minutes of scientific brilliance. Here is my effort:
The winner was the wonderful Emer Maguire from Strabane, so well done to the Tyrone contingent! I'll post her video too - you'll like it. Trust me.
We're doing it again! This time we are biking from Petra in Jordan up to Nazareth in Israel, to raise money for the Nazareth Hospital Dialysis Unit. Last year we raised over £50,000 for the Children's Unit! Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel; the people are lovely, and the kids are awesome. Nazareth also treats kids in the West Bank of Palestine who have very limited access to healthcare. They need your help! Go to my sponsorship page to find out more and see what you can do! Maybe even join us..? http://justgiving.com/shanenaz
