Today was another fantastic Herdman Symposium – one of the best yet, I feel! Every single presentation was amazing, and, once again, I took something from each and every one!
Below are the abstracts and speaker information (as provided in the Herdman Syposium program): I will be writing about each one individually over the next few weeks – FAR too much information to pack into one post! Apologies for the photo quality; my Canon 600D is firmly rooted on my microscope at the moment, so I resorted to using my mobile phone :s Hence some photos have been acquired elsewhere…
Do you like rocks and minerals? Would you like to ask questions about rocks and discover more about them?
Maria Aristeidou’s PhD project is to help people engage in scientific investigation, by giving them opportunities to collaborate with scientists and run their own research.
“For this study, I am exploring the involvement of amateur geologists in investigating rocks.”
Please register with the online nQuire platform, which will guide you to design and run investigations of rocks. You will have the opportunity to form your own questions and methods, to reach appropriate conclusions. During your effort you will be supported by tools available on nQuire and also through communication with other participants.
The study will run between 13th – 27thMay and you can visit the platform and spend there as much time as you want. Afterwards, you will have to complete two short questionnaires (5-10 mins each) within one week. In addition, if you agree, you can register to participate in a half an hour online discussion. The nQuire platform will remain active for you to carry on your inquiries.
