With the exams approaching, you can expect to see more revision themed posts from me. And I was intending to start that trend about now; however, a couple of really interesting stories in the news caught my eye and I was distracted:
Via the BBC – Wildlife experts are due to discuss the reintroduction of bears (once a native species) into the Scottish Highlands. Click the pic for a full story.
From New Scientist – A miracle material that looks like a liquid yet shatters like glass and happens to be called Oobleck! Once again a quick click takes you to the full story.
And finally, bringing things back to revision, feel free to tweet me (@MFEbden) with any questions about your exam prep.
The events with Felicity last week were a fantastic success! Lots of inspirational thoughts and ideas…

Dr Ben deals with evidence – how to collect it with properly designed experiments and how to use it sensibly. This story (from the BBC) is all about a really great experiment carried out a Newcastle University that’s shed some light on one of the great mysteries of science:
Another good website for you and this one’s awesome!
…is a site where users can log on and help researchers identify animals caught on camera traps over a massive area in Tanzania. You’ll be looking at pictures like this:
Or maybe this:
And telling the researchers what animals you think you’ve seen. It’s a bit like being on safari from the comfort of your sofa. I’ve spent a few hours already but I’m not too worried seeing as I know it’s productive! Get involved!
