Last month we asked a few children ages 6-10 to imagine themselves as a scientist and draw what that would look like.
Along with the picture we asked them to state:
1) What kind of scientist are you?
2) What are you doing?
3) Why is your work important?
Here’s what they came up with.
The artwork and answers are fascinating.
