Alice and her bag of science in January

Alice (check out her Insta at @scied_alice) and her #bagofscience

What‘s in your (science) bag? It’s the January #scicommchall
I must admit, my bag is not very science-y. I usually carry coffee and water around with me (stay hydrated friends!) as well as some tools for quick notes and feel-good goodies like hand cream.
Are there any science things in your bag that you carry around because they’re so handy?

One, two, three bags full of science with Sara – look at this:

Die @scicommchall für Januar lautet: “What’s in your science bag.” Puh, da wird einem erstmal klar, dass ich immer zwei Taschen mit mir herum trage und manchmal sogar eine dritte Tasche. Also los geht’s!

Tasche Nr. 1
Businessplaner 2020 für alle Termine, Aufgaben, Projektplanungen und den ganz normalen Wahnsinn gleich mit. Notizbuch, für alles unkoordinierte, was noch geplant werden muss.
Dokumentenmappe für alle Zettel, Textmarker, sowie 2 Bücher, die ich aktuell zum Paper Schreiben benötige.
KiSOC-Sammelmappe für andere Dokumente.
Kopfhörer fürs Arbeiten und auch um sich manchmal konzentriert im Großraumbüro zum Arbeiten zurück ziehen zu können.
Festplatte für die Backups (wichtig!), @drsamson , mein Datenschutzbeauftragter , erinnert mich regelmäßig daran!
Sowie die flic Buttons für meine Erhebung plus Ersatzbatterien, Stifte, Anspitzer und einen USB-Stick.

Tasche Nr. 2
Mein Arbeits-Laptop mit Stromkabel, Stiften und Post-its.

Tasche Nr. 3
Meine eigene VR-Brille mit meinem 360° Film für Wissenschaftskommunikation. Sowie Zubehör: Controller, USB Kabel zum Datenüberspielen und Aufladen, Brillenträgerzubehör, Batterien für den Controller, Reinigungstuch, Bedienungsanleitung.

Nena shows us her bag of science

Nenas @nena_weiler bag of science in January shows us her most important thing in her backpack (she never has a handbag) which is her binocular to explore the nature everywhere and every time. Also with her mostly is a tube to store exciting nature-stuff to look on closer.

 

Nena December #SciCommChall about fishes and ducks

I want to explain the name of a fish Oblada melanura, a bream which is living in the Mediterranean. If you know some Latin words and see how the fish look like, it’s very easy never forget this name anymore.

Between the body and the tail fin, the fish has a little black round point. And that’s it. Melanura means black, so it’s the description of the color. Oblada is something round, like the point and describes the point on the tail fin.

 

Often you can read the description sexual dimorphism during reading a book about animals in combination with the looks of males and females. But what does it mean? The word sexual means the different sexes, the male and the female. Dimorphism must be separated to see the meaning. Di means two, like a dialog, a conservation between two people. And morphism means the look of the animals. All in all, we can combine: sexes two looks – the sexes of an animal have a different look. On of the best examples is the Mallard. The males with a beautiful green head and the females with a brownie camouflage look.  Do you know other animals with an sexual dimorphism?
