I had the pleasure of trying out
the Koala Farm Crate for 3-4 year olds today from @kiwico_inc with my daughter and I must say it’s amazing.
@KiwiCo_inc is a monthly subscription crate that comes filled with age appropriate STEM projects for kids, from toddlers to teenagers.
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and math. Every crate explores a different theme designed to spark creativity, thinking, and learning.
The farm crate had 3 separate projects to complete.
One was the vegetable garden activity which then turns into a harvest match game.
The other project were animal finger puppets which Miss 3 loved to do.
Then we completed the Barn Tote to store our animal puppets and vegetable garden in.
All three projects were age appropriate and Miss 3 loved all three. She was able to follow the instructions in the booklet and complete most of it herself.
Head to my stories or the link in my bio for your first month free! Just pay $9.95 for shipping and you can try it out! 🤗
D-4 to #GYSS2019 – Do you want to learn about the kinds of research projects that fellow participants are working on? Are you looking for like-minded peers to collaborate and break new ground in complementary areas of research? Don’t miss the GYSS poster session happening next Tue (22 Jan), which will showcase the research projects of 100 fellow participants. #scientistsinSG
Meet #GYSS2019 participant Jay, who is currently pursuing a PhD in marine biology at @hkuniversity. Her research focuses on how climate change, specifically extreme weather events, will impact reef species in the region.
Jay is our Instagram ambassador for #GYSS2019, and will be sharing her experience and stories with us in the coming week. Follow her at @jay.saltyscientist for more! Meanwhile, here are her thoughts on the role of science and what she is looking forward to at #GYSS2019. #scientistsinSG -- What role do you think research, science and technology play in the world today?
As a climate change scientist, I believe science and tech are important fields of research which will enable us to better prepare for future challenges. The interdisciplinary possibilities between science and tech offer immeasurable potential for future research endeavours connecting researchers from many different fields, who all ultimately share the same goal - the betterment of mankind. -- What are you looking forward to at GYSS this year? Do you have any words for fellow participants like yourself?
During my PhD so far, much of my collaboration and networking has involved other marine biologists who share my passion for my field of research and desire to protect nature to secure our future. I am excited to meet and discuss with other passionate individuals outside of my specific area of research, hopefully realising potential opportunities I haven’t been able to envision thus far. As an early career scientist, I am particularly excited to meet and discuss with experienced and successful academics to hopefully inspire me and offer career advice. I am excited to find new ideas on how to incorporate my work with other fields such as technology in order to communicate it better to the public. I am also looking forward to meeting early career scientists from other disciplines, to discover how they are planning their future careers and hopefully share some knowledge from my field.
Hoy es un día importante, porque mi primera tesista defendió públicamente su tesis, graduándose como Magíster en Nutrición y Alimentos, mención Nutrición Humana. Yo, por mi parte, me gradúo como académico, realizando mi primera contribución a la siguiente generación de profesionales de excelencia de este país #uchile#intauchile#youngscientist#proud#happy#excellence#masterpiece #👌🏽

In our house you never know what you’re going to walk in on.
Alhamdulillah, another paper finally published. It is very hard balancing industrial and academic work. However, as a scientist, our value is based on our contribution to scientific advancement rather than profitability. Another project to look forward to this year.
Hear to our very own young scientist, hailing from Mysuru.
Pratap N M, working on drone in use of traffic, security and survalance has participated in many national and International events such as Robot Exhibition in Tokyo, Japan.
So what are you still waiting for? Apply now!

The past four days have been an experience of a lifetime, thanks to everyone who was there cheering along for us and especially those who participated with us, it's been my third and last year participating in the #btyste#youngscientist exhibition, after two unsuccessful years, Filip and I have redeemed ourselves and came around with the Runner Up Best Group Project Award, this is to show that as long as you keep trying, in the end you'll figure out how to make it to the end. This competition accepts 1200 students presenting 550 projects, hand picked from over 4000 applicants over the whole country and Northern Ireland, and it is hard for us to imagine that we received 3rd place for this. I'd also love to congratulate @vis_nzekwe and @whois_ashley2 who received 3rd place in the Technology Senior Group Category, this is @vis_nzekwe 's second award in this competition and also his last time joining.
An emotional reunion - 15 years ago I was an excited teenager, who wanted to be a scientist, competing in the BT Young Scientist Competition. Even with all the amazing experiences I’ve had in the intervening years, I still think my week at the YS all those years ago, was one of the most amazing, exciting and inspirational weeks of my life.
I always believe that the YS started my science career. Without it on my CV I wouldn’t have received the scholarships to Cornell University & UCD during my undergrad at UCC. And subsequently those experiences, along with the YS, resulted in the award of a scholarship to study for a DPhil (PhD) at Oxford University. Now a Principal Scientist...what a journey but it all really did start with the YS!
It was an honour and very emotional to get to chat with Jennifer McCarthy #kinsalecommunityschool who has won the Senior Chemical, Physical & Mathematical award...one of the same awards I won 15 years ago! How exciting to have it all ahead of her! Amazing project - best of luck for the future! #btyoungscientist#itstartshere#btyste#science#btyste2019#rte#departmentofeducation#youngscientist#biology#chemistry
Congratulations to the winner of the @discoveryed@3M#YoungScientist challenge, Rishab Jain, I was so impressed by your AI Pancreatic Cancer Deep Learning System, as well as your incredible collaboration and communication in #science. You are an inspiration!
