Eglė here, reporting straight from the Sunrise Valley in Vilnius, Lithuania, where I had the pleasure to meet one of local catchers here in Vilnius - Asta (Astrocitija) !
We got in touch with Asta during the #RedeemLoot competition in Stall Catchers - she was the very first participant to submit her loot, and therefore got a special bonus from us - Stall Catchers & EyesOnALZ laptop stickers, which I delivered during our meeting .. 😄
Asta has found out about Stall Catchers from our abstract in the recent conference here in Vilnius - Open Readings 2017. Here I presented our poster From Stardust to Blood Stalls: How Interdisciplinary Citizen Science is Changing the Way We Do Research (see it here).
Asta is a researcher here, in the Genetics department of the Joint Life Science Centre of Vilnius University.The Sunrise Valley in Vilnius - this is where the Life Sciences, Physics, Communication, Technology departments of Vilnius University and many other great things reside!
Asta said she has been drawn into the game & really likes it!! Woohoo!!
Most importantly, Asta has agreed to lead the team in Vilnius during the upcoming #Catchathon !!! Yay! I hope they win 😛 (not biased at all...)
My best way to relax is to catch some very tricky stalls - that's why I ADORE STALL CATCHERS so much 👍 said Asta when she first got in touch!
Awesome to meet catchers in person! ❤ Best from sunny Lithuania..!
