The winners have been announced – see here for details.
We would like to challenge everyone to write about science within the constraints of a haiku. We’ve got a Kindle Paperwhite to give away as a prize, so get those thinking caps on and find a pencil…
Warning: Sci-Kus can prove very addictive and may disrupt your working day.
Entries should fit the format of a haiku (a three line poem, with a set syllable pattern of five/seven/five)
The Sci-Ku could deal with science in many ways, but some suggestions might be:
- Explain a scientific concept
- Write about your favourite scientist
- Present a hypothesis
- Or tell us how you feel about science
Some examples from the Edinburgh International Science Festival team:
All the goodness gone
Stripped of its very essence
Really small things move about
In specialised ways.
I love chemistry
They are everything
Winning entries will be published online on our website, and possibly also in a pamphlet in each Midlothian Library. Entries must be submitted by 21 October 2014. Good Luck!
