Science Calling is written by Maria Delaney.
Science Calling’s aim is to increase interest in science by writing about new research, our island, science activities/events and thoughts on science in a simple and appealing way (with a bit of fun thrown in). It was crowned the Best Science and Education Blog at Blog Awards Ireland 2012 and won Blog of the Year at the DCU Smedia Awards 2013.
