Emptied of expectation. Relax.

Went to a meeting today about a science project our school has signed up to only to discover that it's actually a randomized control trial! Philosophically, I am very pro RCTs so yay, but it did mean that a lot of the meeting was about explaining RCTs, how they work and why they're important, which I already know. Still, I got to ask at the end whether they would publish negative results if that was the outcome and got the (surprised but pleased) response that they would be so we can totally sign up for it, which is quite cool. I wonder if there is a trial registry for education trials...

Also, do I still know any STEM ambassadors? Apparently we'll be linked with one for some of the work in the project and those aren't randomly assigned so I can bag people I know!

Oh, also, essay returned, 82/100 so not distinction yet, but a good start. Some useful comments which I mostly thought were fair enough, so that's very positive as well.
