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.


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”:


There are many ways to share your science.Why not have some fun while you’re doing it? Submit your sketches now!
