Science Posters

As part of the first year science module, our students carry out an investigation and the record it as a poster.

In search for that elusive job….

Okay – I know I have failed already with one of this year’s target for this blog, but things have changed and because of this so has some priorities. I’m currently trying to develop more of a split between personal and work life, mainly for my own sanity, but also because my activities with my game streaming and the radio station is taking up loads of my time away from work that I don’t really want to complete writing for this blog while ‘away’ from work.

This is so true and I often remind myself of this whenever I start something new and feel that I am either being swamped with information or the initial outcome is not to a standard I want it to be. Hang on, bear with me this is going somewhere. This week I managed to achieve something which to most of you reading this will probably appear to be a small, minor step but,to me, it is definitely a giant leap!
