Scicurious at the Igs

Scicurious, author of the blog The Scicurious Brain, attended both the Ig Nobel Prize ceremony and the Ig Informal Lectures. She wrote a series of thoughtful, amused reports about what she found there.

Here’s a list of her reports. We will (if we do not overly adhere to the Ig-Nobel-literature-Prize-winning Theory of Structured Procrastination) feature each of them individually over the coming weeks.

NOTE: We always mutter to journalists that the each year’s new crop of Ig Nobel Prize winners can be useful to them. Ten winners, ten spectacular stories that all kinds of people, in all kinds of places, would be thrilled to see. In the 21 years we have been holding the Ig Nobel Prize ceremony, Scicurious is (as best we remember) the first journalist to truly take advantage of this.
