Welcome to QuirkyScience

I’m Vincent Summers, the founder of QuirkyScience. I am a writer, retired chemist, genealogist, and public Bible instructor.

Ellen H. Fenwick, my first cousin, is a traveler, mathematician, and computer programmer. We love all things technical and puzzling—topics that feature the bizarre or the humorous—the quirky.

But let’s talk about you. Some of you searched us out because you find science and math fascinating. Others stumbled in here by accident and feel science is boring. We hope to alter that perspective.

Science and mathematics, are exciting! Unless, that is, they are left in the hands of scientists and mathematicians who communicate like lawyers. We try to avoid that here. We also try to avoid passing off unverified “science stories” as proven fact!

Special Note: “We’d like to give a great big thank-you to Victoria Nicks (MSIT), for her assistance in behalf of QuirkyScience.”
