Perfect Stranger
#flickr #photo  
It is still winter in my part of the world, and work is keeping me in doors. However, I can be easily distracted. Seeing this one red flower with the fringed petals in a group of pink and yellow tulips with smooth edges, it was the perfect stranger to redirect my attention. When I am on topic, you can find me on Twitter

Finding Fractals in the Grocery Store
As I walked through the produce section, I stopped in amazement when I spotted the broccoli romanesque. I knew immediately that it was an example in nature of a fractal pattern.

This looks too otherworldly to be edible!

Frosty February
 a #flickr #photo for this incredibly changing weather we are having lately
It might be a good day to curl up by the fire even though all the frost on the trees makes it look so very beautiful. Even if I'm curled up by the fire, you can still find me on Twitter

Unnatural Selection: Why the Geeks Will Inherit the Earth – a review

I review Mark Roeder’s book which examines winning in the Anthropocene and how technology might help change us from dandelions into orchids.

From genotype to phenotype

I found this to be an interesting read introducing me to the concept of eusocial insects and sociogenomics.

#scichat  
Researchers aim to unravel the molecular mechanisms by which a single genotype gives rise to diverse castes in eusocial organisms.

In support of the scientific method

Some have questioned the role of the scientific method in science education. This is a response to those concerns.

If William Shakespeare can find beauty in winter, then so can I. I've posted a lot of pics from this very spot. I walk to here frequently. Today during a winter chinook, almost all the snow has gone. By strapping on cleats to our shoes, we are able to walk up (and down) the very icy trails. When I'm not quoting the bard, you can find me on Twitter

Celebrating World Snow Day 2015

World Snow Day did not disappoint! I celebrated with a small group of friends as we skied up the Cascade Fire road.

Science Fair Season in Alberta 2015

Science educators’ discussions on social media (#edchat) are often on topics that support the standards brought out in #STEM and #NGSS curricula. Science fairs are excellent way to facilitate project-based learning.
