We Are Scientists

I love this for so many reasons.

I’ll give you one.
This video captures how diverse scientists are.

I’ll bet if you closed your eyes to imagine a scientist, you’d think of this:

Professor Frink from The Simpsons (Copyright 20th Century Fox).

Or this:

Or, you know, some human variation of these two.

But not all scientists are men. And not all of us work in a lab.

And even if we do, not all of us wear a white lab coat.

All shapes. All sizes. All colors.
