Think Smart 2B Smart!

Science just got Smarter!

Win a Quasicrystal Nobel Prize Tie/Scarf!

WIN an exclusive quasicrystal tie or scarf to celebrate the 2011 Nobel Prize in Chemistry!!!

This is your chance to get hold of a limited edition Quasicrystal tie. The tie was Commissioned by Technion President Prof. Peretz Lavie for Distinguished Prof. Dan Shechtman on the occasion of his 70th birthday in January 2011. When the phonecall came from Stockholm in October 2011 informing Technion of Shechtman's receipt of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, the tie was rushed into use.
