The Music of Science

I did not study Science in college, but a couple of my siblings did. In fact my mum as well was a Chemistry graduate and taught Chemistry and Biology in school. We've started the work week with a Chemistry birthday...and will end it with a Biology birthday. 

Today we remember an extra-ordinary scientist who organised all the chemical elements into a simple table - the Periodic Table also called the Mendeleev table. Dmitri Mendeleev was born on 8th February 1834.

It's not easy to remember all the names of the elements, so someone put it to music. If you intend to pursue a career in science, maybe you should learn to sing this one. 

On Friday 12th February, the world celebrates Darwin Day, marking the 207th birth anniversary of Charles Darwin. We all know Darwin's theory of evolution of the 'Monkey To Man'.

Speaking of science, I guess many of you have enjoyed the American science sitcom currently in its ninth series on CBS. I've been rolling with laughter at the antics and exploits of Leonard, Sheldon and Raj in 'The Big Bang Theory'.

So go ahead, make sure you explore your scientific side this week. And tell us about your best science experiment.
