If you attended Fall Meeting this year or followed us on social media, you may have noticed some hand-drawn depictions of scientists’ research. We asked scientists at the meeting to draw their research through our #sketchyourscience campaign. We rounded up all of the submissions that happened during the meeting and you can find a summary below. 

We were so overwhelmed by the positive response that we decided to keep #sketchyourscience going – through Tumblr! Similar to our Postcards from the Field program, we’re asking you, our members, to submit sketches of your science to our Tumblr account.

SUBMISSION GUIDELINES

Here’s how it works: You can draw your science and take a picture/scan it in, draw it on your tablet or notebook, or even use Clipart if you’re not keen on showing off your artistic skills (Note: artistic skills not required). Make sure it’s saved in common photo format (e.g. .png, .jpeg), then submit it, along with a short description or title, to our Tumblr site, and tag it as “sketch your science”:
