What is a Scientist?

We thought about what comes to mind when we hear the term 'scientist'. We recorded our ideas about what a scientist looks like, what jobs they do, what equipment they use and any special skills or personality traits that they may have.

We then discussed the stereotypical scientist, and were pleased to see that we had a range of different looking scientists, both male and female. We enjoyed a story called 'Not all scientists wear lab coats' and then looked at a range of different scientific jobs, from paleontologists to parasitologists to computer scientists. We considered what type of scientist we would choose to be if we were to become a scientist.
