Science jewelry giveaway for grad students - WINNERS!

Time to announce the three winners of my giveaway! This was a very difficult choice, as all the entries were really interesting. We had shiny new grad students with their hearts full of hope and no clue about the terror and devastation to come (kidding! sort of), knowledgeable and confident newly-minted PhDs, and everything in between. It was so fun and inspiring to read all your stories, so thank you all for entering! In the end, though, I did have to choose only three entries to win. Here they are:

Molly is an energetic young scientist just embarking on her journey through grad school. She had what sounds like a very entertaining undergraduate research experience pulling ex-food out of skua poop. The poop was apparently collected by very brave field researchers who risked the face-flaying talons of angry skuas, who are, as it turns out, unusually protective of their feces. Molly sent this photo of her completely awesome homemade cell costume.

Julie says she’s always been a scientist at heart, and performed her first experiment at the tender age of 3, when she tossed her pet bunnies in the pool to find out if they could swim. Don’t worry, the bunnies were fine. She’s learnt a few things about the scientific method since then, and is now in her second year of a PhD in developmental genetics. Julie studies nervous system development in a sea anemones (not bunnies). She hopes to continue in academia and eventually become a professor, but is keeping her options open. Maybe she’ll become the world’s first bunny swim coach! You can follow Julie on Twitter @Julie_B92

Jennifer is almost through her first year of her PhD, but her path has been an unusual one so far. She’s a single mom, a blogger, a former science instructor, and a very cool lady. She’s a wonderful example of the strange and enriching places life can take you when it throws you for a loop. It’s challenging being a grad student, and we all know single moms work their butts off, but when you read Jennifer’s blog you quickly realize that she’s handling the load with grace, sincerity, and a truly astounding amount of good old fashioned hard work. I can’t imagine someone more deserving of any prize, however humble this one might be. Jennifer can be found on Twitter @OshnGirl

Thanks again for all your entries!

Science jewellery giveaway for graduate students!

Are you a biology student about to start graduate school? Have you just received a Masters or PhD in biology? Are you midway through a gruelling, inspiring, bizarre or otherwise prize-worthy graduate degree? Then you could win one of my original science jewellery pieces just for being awesome!

Heres what you need to do:

Write me a short email or blog post about what you study or hope to study and why. What inspired you to study your field of biology? What cool things have you learned or do you hope to learn? What are your plans for your future in science? What challenges have you faced along the way? Or heck, just tell me an entertaining story :)

Please also let me know if it’s alright to share your story (or just parts of it) and whether I can use your name.

I’ll choose my 3 favourite entrants to receive a necklace, bracelet or pair of earrings of their choice. You have until the end of the day on Friday June 6th to submit your entry. Email your submission to giroofasaurus.vexed@gmail.com or send me a link to your submission via twitter @tehpet or here.

Cheers,

Peggy Muddles :)

Last night at the studio, some fresh from the glaze kiln and some works in progress.
