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. I actually wrote a poem called “Ode to a G-Protein Coupled Receptor”. Look, I was under a lot of pressure.

  2. Glenda Mahoney

    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.

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

  4. 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.)

  5. I wrote a song about Maxwell’s Wave Equations.

  6. Ellen

    I won a Ms. Frizzle look-alike contest with a cephalopod-themed costume.

  7. Nola

    I paint colour theory and synaesthesia paintings.

  8. Catherine

    Pulled a stint as an Environmental educator, preschool through adult ages. ‘Nuff said.

  9. Mike Taylor

    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.

  10. Briny Deep

    I continue to pull that environmental educator stint. On “Space Day,” we all made tinfoil hats.

  11. Joi

    I made a Mars Rover out of pipe cleaners! (It’s Spirit, obviously, because the wheels are all wonky)
