The “arts and crafts” badge.


Because you can’t have a bunch of badges without an arts and crafts badge. This one assumes the recipient has all manner of “craftiness” with a sciencegeek twist. (AC)



  1. This is for all of the scientific illustrators out there, who love painting really nerdy things! I have lavished hours of my life on portraits of giant squid and proteins floating around inside cells. Because sometimes, you really CAN’T just take a picture. Trust me.

  2. While studying for a genetics final, I modeled replicating DNA using a knitting project I was working on and some leftover halloween candy.

  3. I have a pattern for a crocheted DNA molecule (stuffed). And while I was looking at it, I noticed that the sample in the photo twists the wrong way. (I had to look it up to confirm, but it’s definitely wrong.)

  4. I consumed incredibled quantities of coffee while working on a robotics project, and then assembled a wallet from the canvas sack that the coffee beans came in.
