Can you Sci-ku?

This year we’re looking for Sci-ku poems with a statistics or mathematics theme, in recognition of 2013 being the International Year of Statistics and the International Year of Mathematics of Planet Earth. Unleash your inner science poet.

Winners will be announced at the end of Book Week, 23 August 2013.

The Sci-Ku Competition is part of the Great Big Science Read. Check out other ways to be involved.

A National Science Week event, supported by the Government of South Australia

What is Sci-ku?

Inspired by the Japanese haiku, sci-ku is a short three-line poem about sciences. Sci-ku is a small, modest and humble poem that depicts the everyday world around us, aiming to give a flash of insight into that world — like a scientific ‘Eureka!’ moment expressed briefly in words.

Here’s an example provided by RiAus Director, Dr Paul Willis.
