Already two years of blogging! Today, MyScienceWork blows out its candles. Enjoy this special anniversary weekend note.

Already two years of blogging! Today, MyScienceWork blows out its candles. Enjoy this special anniversary weekend note.

From the MyScienceWork blog to MyScienceNews, lots of articles have been published over these past two years. The team's interns took this opportunity to select some favorites among them and present them to you throughout the week. From fear, to colors, to addictions, a whole menagerie of themes awaits you...

This week marked another major event for MyScienceWork. On the 24th of April, we celebrated the end of the first season of our web series Knock Knock Doc. We held a special event for the occasion at the University Sorbonne Nouvelle in Paris. The MyScienceWork team gathered some of the PhD students starring in the series, so that they could all share their experiences. Several experts also took the floor to address the theme of art and science.

More than 50 people shared this moment with us and watched the exclusive premiere of the inter-season episode of Knock Knock Doc.

If you weren’t there, you’ll have to wait a few weeks to see it...

Until then, you can still watch the whole season of Knock Knock Doc. However, we do apologize, only the first seven episodes have English subtitles yet. Captions for the last three will be coming soon, including #10:

Life on Mars

 

After visiting the Rochechouart Crater, where Nicolas Bost, the PhD student starring in the tenth episode, does his research, MyScienceNews took off to study in glacier-fed rivers with our article

The Laboratory at the Glacier’s Mouth

Glacier-fed rivers’ food chain can be used as a conceptual model

Scientists take great interest in glaciers, which constitute keys to understanding the trophic relations of an ecosystem.

 

To conclude, we would like to send a special greeting to someone who just received a lovely present -- although it was not her birthday! We are glad to congratulate Marion Candau, the PhD student in cryptology who won the iPad up for grabs in the contest organized by the MyScienceWork network. We interviewed her to know more about her experiences and expertise.

And the winner of the IPad contest is… Marion Candau, PhD student in cryptology!

Searching for the science of secrets

 

We wish you a very good weekend and thank you for being with us for almost 2 years!
