Shifting specimens!

With the closure of the Public Gallery, its time to move the exhibition specimens to the department for easy access for our various road shows.

While I was busy marking papers and plotting other mischief, a small team busied themselves with the move on Wednesday (15 May 2013) morning. Its not a lot of specimens when you look at it, so its all the talking that goes along with this!

Immediately thereafter, Toddycats started preparing the stations list for the Faculty of Science Open House this Saturday. We have no idea how many people are coming so must be prepared for anywhere between 25-100 over four, 30-minute sessions:

  1. 12:15pm -12:45pm
  2. 12:45pm – 1:15pm
  3. 2:30pm – 3:00pm
  4. 3:00pm – 3:30pm

With Life Sciences Lab 7, we can partition the area into three, and have 2-3 stations per partition. Even if very large numbers turn up, we can cope.

I’ll just set aside the gigaphone in car we need to move people around.

I’ll work the possible scenarios and movement during the dry run with the volunteers.

While we were all hard at work, David Tan was birding in New York’s Central Park and bumped into Ben King. Yes, that birder! Read about it in the Biodiversity Crew.

  1. Enjoyed the workshop at the Open House. Thank you Toddycats for the enthusiastic sharing. My family and I headed to Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve immediately after that and spotted mudskippers, horseshoe crab, tree climbing crabs etc. My children enjoyed both experiences.
