The Alumni Network Blog

The latest from the Alumni Network at Lund University

Psssssst! You’ve got mail!


Lundensaren, the Alumni Newsletter, is sailing into your inbox today! It will be absolutely jam-packed with interesting events that you don’t want to miss this autumn – some taking place offline in Lund/Malmö (yes, can you believe it?!) and some will be online.

Another fun thing to mention from the newsletter is, of course, the competition where you can win a copy of the book featured in the picture of this blog post. It could be the perfect thing to give as a holiday gift (believe it or not, but the holidays are coming fast!).  Who would you want to give it to? (The competition is now closed 1 October 2021)

About the book
When Beppe digs into his sweet treats, he ends up with a sour candy. Ugh! Beppe hates sour candies. Is there any way to avoid sour candies? What is sour anyway? And what is the pH scale?

Beppe Singer is an LU alumnus, chemist and has been the TV-presenter for the children’s TV-show Hjärnkontoret. He also writes books (in Swedish) for curious children! All you have to do for a chance to win is leave a comment on this blog post telling us to whom you want to give the book. Three names will be drawn at random on Friday 1 October.

That’s all for now.
Happy reading and have an awesome weekend!

Kind regards from
Helga at the Alumni Office 😊

    My curious son would love this book! Have tried to explain what sour sweets do to his teeth. It would be great to read this book with him. Haven’t found a fun way yet to talk about acid/base in the things around us, so this I think he would enjoy.
