Greetings all our Real Science Experience minions,

As you will know if you have been here from the start or if you have checked out out info page, we have been conducting this blog as part of a group assignment for a subject teaching us all about how to communicate science to both our colleagues and the public.

Last Thursday we presented to our class, our mentors and our assessors what we’ve done and how effective our task was.

In under two months we’ve accumulated 2780 hits, as well as getting some really valuable insight into how you, the readers of this blog, engaged with us through both your insightful comments and activity on the blog.

Our blog was received really well by everyone: they were impressed not only with the blog itself, but with the readership we have gained in such a small time. So, from all four of us here at The Real Science Experience: thank you! We absolutely could not have done it without you! Sincerely. We would have looked pretty silly reporting that we had no comments and minimal hits. We don’t know our grade yet, but the written feedback we got later was similarly positive.

One question we got asked by many was; would we continue this blog?

We think that should be up to you guys!

You’ve given us the impression that this has really helped some of you, so we feel compelled to continue. But we’ll only do it if the interest is there. So let us know! If you can’t be bothered commenting, we’ve made it really easy for you:

Of course, we’d love to hear from you in the comments, too.

You might be wondering how we celebrated the end of our projects after a semester of hard work. With pizza and cake, of course! Check out some of our pictures from our final seminar!

    I definitely think you should continue this blog. I’ve noticed a few comments throughout it about people saying how much a site like this would have helped them, when they were thinking about doing science at a tertiary level. Hopefully the word can get around to more people like this, whilst they’re in high school.

    But more importantly, that cake looks really good!

  2. Uni is a big place and its very easy to get lost in what you want to do, what choices to make, how to go about it all. This blog has been very valuable in informing students on possible major tracks, the advantage of breath and other university issues that come along with your degree. Thankyou 🙂
