This Is What A Scientist Looks Like Vinyl Sticker
You can’t be what you can’t see. Show your role as a scientist with this super shiny vinyl This is What a Scientist Looks Like sticker.
If you ask school-aged child to draw a scientist, they are likely to draw someone wearing chunky safety glasses in front of a variety of colourful liquids fizzing and bubbling atop a laboratory bench.
If you’d asked this question in the 1960s and 1970s, less than 1% of children would have drawn scientists as female, and thankfully, things are changing. The percentage of women drawn by school-aged children has steadily increased over time; reaching an estimated 34% by 2016. This increase tracks in line with the increased representation of women in the science workforce.
The idea is a simple one, young people who see themselves in science are more likely to imagine themselves working in the field. No matter who you are, your visibility as a scientist can make a difference – seeing a person doing science that looks, feels and sounds like you, makes it more likely that you will feel empowered to do science yourself.
Be proud of your role as a scientist, and show it with this super shiny vinyl This is What a Scientist Looks Like sticker.
This sticker comes in a choice of two colours.
Option 1 measures 8.5×3.7cm, features teal, yellow & pink tones, and has a transparent background (the white outline shown in the product image is the back of the sticker – this peels off to reveal transparent vinyl so that whatever surface the sticker is placed over is visible underneath).
Option 2 measures 10×4.5cm, features grey, blue, red & orange tones, and has a white background.
Both variations are printed in beautiful full colour using eco-friendly UV stable inks onto a durable heavy-duty vinyl with a strong adhesive backing. With our This Is What A Scientist Looks Like sticker, you can show that YOU are what a scientist looks like by sticking this to your notebook, laptop, folder, mirror – they’ll stick to just about any clean surface! It’s sturdy, waterproof, and weatherproof – we’ve had scientists stick them to their water bottle and take them out on fieldwork, and our stickers have even been stuck to cars! These babies will go wherever you choose to stick them, allowing you to shout about diversity in STEM wherever you go.

I post out orders once a week on a Wednesday, this is because I run Little Science Co alongside my full-time job as an academic researcher. This little passion project has grown more than I ever thought possible (thanks to you lovely people!), and I need to put some boundaries in place to ensure that I don’t burn out. If you really need your order to be posted out more quickly, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and I will do my best to help you.
I use Royal Mail to buy postage online, and then I pop all orders in my local post-box to make sure I am minimising social contact as far as possible. Currently, Royal Mail remains open for business as usual, though they are understandably experiencing some delays due to the ongoing pandemic. International orders are also experiencing delays due to Brexit (not my choice… #ScientistsForEU).
At the checkout you will be asked to select either ‘standard’ delivery which is not a tracked service, or ‘upgraded’ delivery which is a tracked service. If you would like to be able to see where in the world your order is between its journey from me to you, please select the upgraded option. Please bear with me through this very strange period – I really appreciate your support and will do my best to make sure that your order reaches you in good time.
