Dr Alison Campbell created BioBlog in response to comments from secondary school biology teachers, especially those preparing students for Scholarship Biology examinations. Dr Campbell endeavours for her blog to encourage critical thinking, looking at scientific papers that are relevant to the Level 3 curriculum and to scholarship study. She also encourages teachers and students to contact her with any questions they may have. Visit BioBlog.
Dr Marcus Wilson provides a light-hearted look at everyday physics. Topics range from the effectiveness of a candle to a light bulb, to scholarship exams, to the ever-changing weather in Hamilton. Physics Stop is written by a physicist, but is intended for a general audience. Visit Physics Stop.
