  Selling unused equipment
Posted by: S.Fay - Yesterday, 08:21 AM - Forum: General Discussions - No Replies

Dear all,

We are sorting out our stores and have several very large pieces of equipment which we would like to sell.

Is there a thread for selling equipment on this forum?

Thanks

Smile #ActualLivingTechnician - tweet on 31st of May
Posted by: E.Gifford - 05-24-2017, 02:40 PM - Forum: General Discussions - No Replies

Hi everyone!

Gatsby, the organisation running the Technicians make it happen campaign would like to get technicians tweeting  on the 31st of May (to coincide with the HE technicians summit) using the hastag #ActualLivingTechnician. 

 "After the success of #ActualLivingScientist in opening up the real work of scientists to the public, we now believe it is time for everyone to understand all the amazing things technicians make happen.
 
We’ll be inviting all technicians to tweet a photograph of yourself at work, with a small description of who you are and what you do, along with our hashtag #ActualLivingTechnician. Scientist and engineers, and any other colleagues of technicians, we also invite you to share photographs of the technicians you work with, to emphasise just how integral they are to the work of so many industries."


Looking forward to seeing lots of #ActualLivingTechnician tweets! 

Best wishes, 
Lizzy
