Science is a part of our lives in every possible way. It is a part of our physical features, the flavours of our food, the plants we grow and the satellites floating above us.
Understanding science helps us understand our lives, our world, our universe. Sometimes science feels like a foreign language. Too hard to understand.
Sciren will translate that science so YOU can understand your world.

It is believed that in Homer's telling of Odysseus, the siren call held more meaning than simply singing songs to sailors to trick them to fall overboard. On returning to Ithaca from the Trojan War, Circe warns Odysseus to guide his ship past the Island of the Sirens, to avoid catastrophe.
Blocking the eyes and ears of his shipmates, Odysseus can be sure of the safety of him and his crew...but to fulfill his curiosity, he may listen to the two sirens- so long as he is safely bound to the ship. Odysseus heeds the warning, learns of the siren's descriptions of the island he must avoid, and returns home safely...after several more mythology-sized adventures...

Now it's 2021, and we're two scientists, super keen on telling you the wisdom of this world; saving you by helping you understand it better...well, maybe not saving you. But definitely translating science so you can understand your world.
Delivering our science disguised in fun crafty workshops. Kind of like facts hidden in a Trojan horse...
In fact, one of us even researched in scientific laboratories in Ithaca..New York...
Well.. you get the link!
