Does Baby Brain really exist? The science is in…

*Collaborative guest post

Yes, the ‘baby brain’ phenomenon truly does exist! A team of scientists from Australia has finally managed to collect empirical data to prove that cognitive function in pregnant women and new mothers does decline. In their study, published at the beginning of the year in the Medical Journal of Australia, the researchers provided proof of cognitive, memory, and executive functioning changes that occur in pregnant women’s brains. more “Does Baby Brain really exist?

A night in the Museum; #Dinosnores for Grown Ups at The Natural History Museum, London

I have to start this post by getting it out there that although I’m blogging dinosnores, I wasn’t gifted this gig. Well, I was, but not in a blog sense. It was a genuine gift from a family member. Just Saying. But sometimes in life you just love something so much you genuinely want to scream about it from the rooftops right? more “A night in the Museum; #Dinosnores for Grown Ups at The Natural History Museum, London”

GUEST POST: 7 Intriguing science experiments for your kids

Science can sometimes be daunting to kids. We can’t blame them all the time, either. It’s mostly the fault of dull textbooks that fail to explain the subject clearly and in a fun way. As your child has a much shorter attention span than you or any other full-sized human being, they need to be presented important information in a fun way. more “GUEST POST: 7 Intriguing science experiments for your kids”

Guest Post: Why kids should science more (Infographic)

As a little girl I wanted to be a vet. Well actually, initially I wanted to be a ‘servant to the King’ or a ‘farmer’s wife’, but thankfully some kind of feminism kicked in past age 5 in which I saw possibilities of my own making. The vet thing wasn’t to be – turns out you need to be crazy brainy, do hours of work experience and be willing to go to Uni or what seems like forever when you’re 18. I kind of fell into a career in Science, having done A level Biology and Chemistry (and Maths) in order to follow the unrealistic vet dream, I secured a lab based role at a large healthcare company locally. There, I was able to be sponsored to complete my Biology degree on day release and the rest is history. I did however always love Science. I didn’t always realise it, but the magic in our everyday surroundings always captivated me, and I’m one of the lucky ones who got to build a career doing what I love. more “Guest Post: Why kids should science more (Infographic)”
