It seems I am gaining some notoriety, for better or worse, for destroying
gummy bears via techniques found in a cell biology type science lab. First sonication, now freezing with liquid nitrogen.
Next apparently will be degradation in proteolytic enzyme. It's a good opportunity to discuss many science concepts that you
may or may not have caught in high school or college. I have other ideas in mind, and this concept is limited by practicality
of carrying them out, availability of equipment and reagents (free) and time, of course.
I'm still reading books! Enjoying them immensely and hoping to get to all those I have read or reading in a timely
way! I have finally updated my list of books I am currently reading or getting to shortly on the Science Books are a Girl's Best Friend page
Also on that page, I have added the list from my
spring semester students under Booklist 2009. See what bright bioengineering students enjoy reading!
Forthcoming, I proclaim confidently, are two loose ends to tie up for you including an analysis of the Famous Face Comparison Poll, with the unfortunate lack of a good quantitative portion, but I think from a curiosity standpoint, the results from votes
The other is an interview I did with an MIT
professor who was a speaker at the GEM4 summer school. it was to be a video format and I forgot to turn on the microphone!
Sigh.Anyway, I would like to relay this information to you all. I was very impressed with her!
In two weeks, there is also the Girls' engineering camp, GAMES. Here is the welcome video from me and Marina.
Until next time,
