In the previous posts, I presented my contribution (original Dutch version / English translation) to the Robbert Dijkgraaf essay contest. This year’s theme was on the importance of imagination in science. My girlfriend, Sylvia, also participated in this essay contest. We read each-others contributions as a final check before submission, and at that point it became clear to me I was out of my league 😳 .
During the gala of science in Amsterdam, the winner of the Robbert Dijkgraaf essay contest was made public. And the winner is: Sylvia Wenmackers.
On her blog you can read the winning essay (in Dutch), and you will understand why I immediately knew my essay was outclassed. Congratulations again my dear 😀 .
