Happy New (Science) Year!!

I was involved in a conversation in the staffroom the other day which centred on the fact....when do you stop saying "Happy New Year"? The consensus was January 10th. (Has this been written somewhere and has it been peer reviewed?)

So here we are and it's January 17th and I'm doing just that!

2014 promises to be an exciting year both in the world of Science and Science within Oak House.

In the world we will be able to avail of the first commercial uses of Graphene (a very, very, very thin sheet of Carbon that has a myriad of uses); see the continuing explorations by the Chinese of the Moon and wonder at what medical breakthroughs will we have....a vaccine for Malaria for example.

On the school front, we have ten weeks before students have to submit their entries for the first Oak House Science fair; students in the Science enrichment projects are continuing with their research and experimentation and plans are ahead for both the first ever Oak House Biology Symposium and a dedicated Science afternoon which is still in the planning stages.

I have been remiss in the posting of articles and the back log is mighty, but this I plan to remedy.

If you like what you read, let us know. If you have any suggestions, we would love to hear them.

Otherwise we look forward to having you along with us for what promises to be an exciting year in Science, 2014!!!
