Science Buttons

from 5.00

These 1.25” pin-back buttons were designed so that girls participating in Project Scientist programs can wear their love of science proudly after their time with Project Scientist comes to an end. Every purchase of these buttons will provide buttons to participants in a Project Scientist summer academy.

  • 2 buttons for you (5) = buttons for 2 future scientists

  • 3 buttons for you (7) = buttons for 6 future scientists

For the past couple of years, I have volunteered for Project Scientist as a STEM Super Star, giving interactive seminars about radio astronomy and nebulae. I have also hosted an expedition, coordinating three mini-sessions about planet formation, comets, and meteorites in which girls learned about planetary science and made observations like the budding scientists they are. In 2019, I will be a STEM Super Star again and would like to give each girl present a button so they can continue to carry their “scientist” identity with them.

Project Scientist is an organization dedicated to increasing diversity in STEM. They host summer academies and expeditions during the school-year to nurture the women scientists of tomorrow. The aim of Project Scientist is “to change the world's view of ‘who’ a scientist is and ‘what’ a scientist does.” Their programs are tailored to young girls, based on research that shows girls, especially underserved girls, are often not provided STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) opportunities that foster their talents and scientific interests. Moreover, by age 6, girls are less likely than boys to think that they can be brilliant. Project Scientist programs are designed to engage girls in STEM through seminars with women who are STEM role models, hands-on activities, and field trips.
