You will say that I don’t know what I want, and maybe it’s true. A few weeks ago, I wrote about how having children is sort of slowing me in my studies. And it’s still true, since months away from school when I was on maternity leave definitely didn’t help me to read and write.… Read More Children and productivity : for the better or the worst?
Marie Currie, Albert Einstein, Watson and Crick, Banting and Macleod (and Best), Alexander Fleming, Linus Pauling, Planck, McClintock. The great ones who came before. This past week in Los Angeles, I was lucky enough to chaperone The Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF), the world’s largest international pre-college science competition.

And so, I thought back to one year ago, and why I decided to become a GradLife blogger.
