Lee and I hang out at the skatepark. I totally thought she skated. Anyway, I also get to do a little bit of scicomm. Enjoy!
I thought I’d take a break from thesis writing and bring back this popular post of mine. No, I’m not procrastinating…well maybe a little…
May seems to be the month for science events, including a nationwide science celebration brought to you by Science-Rendezvous.

Cafe Scientifique with Michael Kobor
Not an event in May, but I thought I’d add it to the list anyway. Dr. Michael Kobor is an epigenetists, aka researches the link between genetics and the environment, and will tell us how the environment gets under our skin. I’m intrigued!
Time: 7:30pm at the Railway Club – where many science gatherings happen.

A Seafood Celebration with David Suzuki and Guest
Show your support for National Sustainable Seafood Day with the Vancouver Aquarium’s Ocean Wise program and SeaChoice. Hosted at the Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver. Sounds fancy!

Science World presents: Dinner and a movie night
This event sounds like it’s geared towards families, but that doesn’t meet you can’t bring a date! You get to learn all about the migration of the Monarch Butterfly, a great conversational piece post-date.
Time: 5:30 – 8:00pm at Science World
Friday May 10 and 11, 2013

UBC Alumni Weekend 2013
It’s like a UBC open house. Lots of cool things to see and do, like attending a Bug Lab Crawl or doing something zany with the Chemistry department. Rick Mercer, my absolute favourite comedian ever, will be giving a short presentation.
Time: All day
If you have any other science-related events you would like me to include in the list, please feel free to tweet me @sswchow. And if you do end up at one of these events, comment below and let me know how it goes or if you see me, come and say hi!
Until next time,
Liam makes up his own rules in this version of Game of Life.
It’s Finals season at UBC. And poor Lee is trying to study, while I look for something to do…
This week Liam, Lee and I go photo hunting.
Liam mentally prepares to Storm the Wall, an annual UBC tradition where students participate in a swim, bike, run race followed by getting your entire team up and over a 12 foot wall.
