We, researchers like to count (down)
in December we wear a (Nobel dinners) gown
Eagerly we await Christmas eve
while grants we try to receive
We, bloggers like to share
hence Researcher’s Advent we prepare
And until the Christmas day arrives
We share advent mood in researcher’s lives
In Sweden, there is a strong tradition of watching a Christmas TV show, Julkalender, during the advent period. Inspired by this the KI Career Bloggers team has decided to create a Researcher’s Advent Calendar for you! We hope to entertain you and make the time until Christmas day pass quicker by sharing our science Christmas tree decorations, explain the science of baking, and many other exciting posts.
Follow our blog during December and even after.
Apparently, we are not the only ones linking science, research and advent. In my field, a charity called Alzheimer’s Research UK has also decided to use Christmas for promoting research on this disease and created a Christmas advert about Santa with dementia. If you came across cool Christmas-science pictures, videos, or sites feel free to share them with us during this month!
