Quotes

...My childhood was devoid of what some people are now calling " science capital ", a concept analogous to cultural capital in that possessing it can promote social mobility beyond one's socioeconomic status. Despite my lack of science capital, my secondary school science teachers were so good that I fell in love with the subject and have gone on to have a rewarding career as a science teacher and communicator. But not every child is as lucky as I was with my teachers, and many people can go through life without ever having the opportunity to engage with science. I'm not one of those people who think all children should be forced to study science until they're 18 , but I do believe that a genuine appreciation of science can enrich one's life in ways that literature, music and art cannot."
...Even the Oxford Dictionary defines a chemical as "a distinct compound or substance, especially one which has been artificially prepared or purified."
...An email I received earlier in the week had also warned: "Please refrain from eating any seedy vegetables such as tomatoes, passionfruit and guava two days prior to arriving as the seeds can be dispersed through our digestive system."
