We bring you discussion, debate and issues from around the web and around the world by focusing on the most popular educational hashtags on Twitter

If there's one thing the internet loves, it's a good portmanteau word. So it should come as no surprise that when we tweeted the hashtag #sciku - scientific haiku - people were eager to add to Camden School for Girls' collection. The North London secondary has recently released a book called Sciku: The Wonder of Science - In Haiku, which was written by its students.

Erwin Schrdinger and his cat proved a popular source of inspiration. @hullodave offered an explanation of Schrdinger's theory: "Box contains a catDoes isotope cause cat death?Open box to know."

Meanwhile, @Sdfahey revealed that Schrdinger didn't have to look too far for test subjects:

" `Where's the cat?' enquires Mrs Schrdinger. ErwinShrugs and pats the dog."

And the tale was completed by @martincampbell2: "A box is openedA furry wave collapses

Danish cat murder."

Another source of inspiration was love. @Kathylambert100 offered: "The chemistry staff Are flirting with each otherCombustible moods."

And @loz2308 submitted:

"Two science teachersKiss and hug in a test tubeOh the chemistry."

But @enrichlearning proved that chemistry teachers don't have all the fun: "The physics teachersAre flirting with each otherTerrible friction." Sarah Cunnane
