MUSTS researchers publish book ‘Unboxed’

MUSTS has launched a public display exhibit, a book and postcards on Instruments for science and technology in Centre Céramique.

Pick up your copy of the FASoS poetry booklet!

During the first lockdown last year, FASoS staff and students participated in a poetry, picture and art contest. We published all entries we received in a beautiful booklet.

This year, while we were in another lockdown, we made the same call for submissions of poetry, art, short stories, photography, and pictures in the FASoS weekly. Again, we received many beautiful poems, drawings and pictures. And we decided to compile all entries into a second edition of the poetry booklet titled Letters in Lockdown. You can pick up a free copy of Letters in Lockdown at your secretariat or at the Marketing and Communications Office (GG90-92, B0.34).
