A small group of us at work gathered together to celebrate the holidays. A coworker and I planned the event and we decided to have a contest around building gingerbread houses…made of lab supplies!
We supplied the glue guns, the cardboard bases and the little blue and green plastic squares (the first person who can tell me what they are will win my admiration and a hand-drawn picture by me! Of course a drawing by me is more of a punishment than a prize…). Five groups of two participated, and these are the results.
Now, it is important to remember that one can be a scientist AND an artist. Indeed, I think science can open our eyes to beauty and elegance in all types of environments and situations which might otherwise go unnoticed.
Ahem. All types of environments. Yeah…
I finally got around to drawing MPM’s prize for being the first one to correctly identify the blue/green plates in the pictures above. His answer is in the comments.
