The Silence of The Lab

The lab I'm working in at the moment is noisy... we're a bunch of people who talk. A lot.

So on the 27th and 28th of May, we're having two whole days of silence in the lab. No talking at all (believe me - this is a big deal. The rest of the department don't think we can do it haha). Why? To raise money for UNICEF's UnderCover Malaria Campaign.

Malaria is a major cause of death in developing nations killing one to three million people per year, the majority children. Malaria transmission can be reduced through the distribution of simple mosquito nets. Please help purchase and distribute mosquito nets to those who need them by supporting The Silence of the Lab.

  1. I'd just like the record to show that no one in Otago believes this lab is capable of 15mins of silence. Let alone two days...
