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've done it again! This time we biked from Petra in Jordan up to Nazareth in Israel, to raise money for the Nazareth Hospital CT Scanner appeal. Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel, but they still don't have a dedicated Stroke Unit to cope with this devastating condition and major cause of death.
