SCIENTISTS GET DRESSED—FALL 2019!

IF YOU WERE A SCIENTIST, HOW WOULD YOU GET DRESSED?

From head to toe, and in between, scientists get dressed for the work they do and the places they do it!”

In Deborah Lee Rose’s new, expanded STEM picture book SCIENTISTS GET DRESSED, kids will be amazed to discover how scientists suit up, gown up, gear up, even dress up in costume to make new scientific discoveries, save lives and save our planet. 

Through stunning and engaging “you are there” photos paired with fun-fact filled text, young readers meet real scientists at work from space to the ocean, and explore what these scientists do, how they do it and why it matters. The book includes a full poster of a NOAA marine biologist satellite tagging an endangered whale shark.

Children will be surprised and fascinated to learn that scientists wear not only white lab coats but helmets, jackets, boots, goggles, fins, spacesuits, waders, harnesses, gloves of all kinds and more. Through the unique lens of what scientists wear, including many photos never published before, SCIENTISTS GET DRESSED inspires and encourages kids to explore STEM in new ways, and to imagine themselves getting dressed for exciting, important work.

The book spotlights a diversity of scientists dressed for their jobs from labs to lava fields, from the sunlit forest canopy to dark bat caves, from buzzing beehives to beyond Earth’s atmosphere. The book includes special information from the Cornell Lab of Ornithology about how kids can get become citizen scientists, and encourages kids to create their own STEM stories.

SCIENTISTS GET DRESSED GLOVE CHALLENGE/ HANDS-ON STEM ACTIVITY

Meet Deborah at the 2019 American Library Association conference in June and the National Book Festival
in August, both in Washington, DC

“While the scientists in the book include pioneers in their fields and environmental heroes, Scientists Get Dressed captures the important fact that scientists work everywhere, and are everyday people children might encounter.”
— Christine Royce, AUTHOR OF “Teaching Through Trade Books” column, National Science Teachers Association Science and Children journal
