How do scientists suit up, gown up, gear up, even dress up in costume to make new discoveries, save lives, and save our planet? From space to beneath the waves, from volcanoes to glaciers, “scientists get dressed for the work they do and the places they do it.” Award-winning children’s author/science writer Deborah Lee Rose (Beauty and the Beak, Jimmy the Joey) will read from her new picture book Scientists Get Dressed and talk about why scientists and engineers put on special clothing to do their extraordinary jobs—like spacewalking to fix the International Space Station or swimming with endangered whale sharks in the ocean. Rose will share a free educational guide and demonstrate the book's hands-on Scientists’ Glove Challenge activity, which any parent, teacher, librarian, community leader and even kids themselves can do, using easily available materials like winter mittens or dishwashing gloves.
