  • 3. Definition
    • Collage: a creative work, made of various materials, and glued onto a surface
    • The image of science that most students think of when asked to describe a scientist portrays a bearded man, wearing a white lab coat, working alone in a laboratory. Although, this image is far from the truth!! Science involves many different types of men AND women, pursuing different sciences, and working in different places. Some scientists use huge instruments, while others use only notebooks and pencils. Most importantly, performing science involves more than “scientists,” and there are many different occupations that are part of the scientific enterprise.
