Spring is upon us
Curious spirits unite
Shades of green evolve
Every moment offers a chance for a new beginning. In this spirit, we are happy to invite you to the first ISTA Spring Festival.
The Spring Festival is an internal afternoon event, which offers the opportunity to meet new (and old) colleagues and have an informal exchange about the many science and non-science related activities that the community of ISTA is all about. Details on the program will follow soon.
Please register for the Spring Festival and let us know by May 26 if you will attend.
As part of the Spring Festival we are opening a call for the ISTA Sciku contest. A Sciku (science + haiku) is a short poem about science following a traditional structure of 17 syllables (5-7-5), which are often associated with nature and/or seasonal references. Read more about Haikus and Scikus and get tips for writing them at www.thescikuproject.com. To participate, please submit your Sciku to email@example.com by May 20.
The best Scikus will be recited at the Spring Festival, and the author of the best Sciku as determined by a jury will win an awesome prize! Everyone who submits a Sciku fulfilling the criteria will receive a print of their Sciku on paper (max. 1/person).
We look forward to your submissions and seeing you at the Spring Festival!
