“From head to toe, and in between, scientists get dressed for the work they do and the places they do it!”
In Scientists Get Dressed, stunning and engaging “you are there” photos and fun-fact filled text let readers discover how scientists suit up, gown up, gear up, even dress up in costume to do their jobs. Young readers (and listeners) meet real scientists facing the challenges of making new discoveries, saving lives and saving our planet—whether they’re floating weightless in space or swimming with endangered whale sharks, digging out snow samples from a frozen glacier or gathering hot lava from a burning volcano, rescuing a wild Bald Eagle or operating on a human brain.
Kids of all ages love to role play by dressing up. Through the unique lens of what scientists wear—including many photos never before published—Scientists Get Dressed inspires kids to explore STEM in new ways, and to imagine themselves getting dressed for exciting and important work.

“An eye-opening catalog of STEM wear!” — Kirkus Reviews
“An absolutely wonderful way to bring the divergent fields of science to life, and create both a curiosity in and a connection with science among young readers. The book introduces readers to a diverse range of scientists and the very different clothing they need to wear. The scientists’ dedication and enjoyment of their work is unmistakable in the book’s photos, many never published before. 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, National Science Teaching Association
