Ten students, ten weeks, 100 posts – thank you!

by Andrew Maynard on March 25, 2012

It’s hard to believe, but the ten weeks of Mind The Science Gap posts are over for this semester!  The ten students did an incredible job, and demonstrated an enviable degree of skill in translating complex science to a broad audience – as well as learning a lot on the way.  Over the past ten weeks we have had nearly 50,000 pageviews and 1,600 comments – not bad for a student public health blog!

I would encourage you to go back and browse the past ten weeks of posts – they are easily worth your time and effort to read, as are the comments on each of them.  If you don’t know where to start, just point your browser to http://mtsg.org/?random – you will be directed to a random post on the site.

And I would especially encourage you to read about what a number of the students thought about and learned from the experience – you can pull up the reflections posts here.

I also wanted to give a huge thank you to our mentors, and everyone else who took the time to comment on posts and to spread the word.  Your help and dedication were invaluable, and highly appreciated!

Mind The Science Gap will be back later in the year with a new batch of students – please subscribe to our mailing list (to the right of this page) so that you don’t miss any thing.

And again, thank you!
