What is ScienceWear?
ScienceWear offers affordable, hands-on, wearable projects to reinforce classroom science lessons. All ScienceWear designs are available on T-shirts and Aprons. Lab Coats are available for the Atomic Attire project as well. These projects help teach lessons on Human Anatomy, Cells and their Organelles, Elements of the Periodic Table, Moon Phases, and Cyclical Patterns that take place all around us.
Advantages of ScienceWear
- Reinforces science essential knowledge and skills
- Extends and can help assess your lessons
- Great for kinesthetic learners
- Projects are worn, sharing science lessons
- Completed in class with all students engaged
- Relieves parent of "project material" stress
- Project less likely to be discarded after teacher assessment
- It's just a lot of FUN!
Find the right project for your students!
- “Atomic Attire” is an element research project that ends with students each creating a personalized wearable depicting properties of their element, along with an atomic model. The Atomic Attire T-shirts and aprons for this project come with the outline of the information required. Designing can be done with fabric markers, permanent sharpie markers*, and/or fabric paint. If aprons are created early in the year, your class will each have their own personalized apron to wear on lab days. At the end of the year students are more than happy to take their atomic attire home. In some cases students even bring them back to wear in science class the next year!
- The human anatomy “Guts” t-shirt or apron comes preprinted with the outline of select organs representing the three systems. Students learn the organs and functions, how the systems interact with one another, and where each organ is located in the body. After coloring provided plan sheet, each student paints and labels their wearable project. Aprons can be worn on lab days and used for comparing anatomy during dissections.
- After students have been introduced to cells and their organelles, observed life in a drop of water under a microscope, and learned the stages of mitosis, “Cell-ebrate Science” with your students by creating wearable cell models. Our “Cell-ebrate Science” design features cell lettering across the top, a microscope at the bottom, and plenty of room for students to paint individualized cell models. Each fashion will be a unique creation that might: feature a plant or animal cell with parts labeled; be swimming with paramecium, euglenas, or amoebas; or even highlight the stages of cell mitosis.
- Lunar Cycle was created at the request of teachers who wanted a wearable project that would help students envision the observable shape changes of the moon during its monthly orbit around the Earth. When students create their wearable they predict and demonstrate the sequence of events in the lunar cycle. The outline for the project is pre-screened on the fabric and students fill-in the moons using a black permanent sharpie and glow-in-the-dark paint. Permanent markers and/or fabric paint can be used to color the rest of the shirt.
- This versatile Science Making Connections design is an excellent wearable project choice for an authentic assessment of a student’s knowledge of a particular cycle. It would be great for illustrating any numbers of cycles including: life cycles, food webs, rock cycle, metamorphosis, water cycle, photosynthesis, carbon cycle, and more.
- This mock lab coat design has students in classrooms, science clubs, and enrichment programs looking fab in the lab. Use fabric markers to add illustrations to show your own science expertise, personalize the name tag, or add the name of your school, club, or program to make it a one-of-a-kind.
About the Creator of ScienceWear
As a teacher for over 29 years in the Texas public school system, Jody has proven she knows how to turn kids on to Science. She has been described as a “compact bundle of energy” and has been recognized many times for innovative teaching strategies including the Excellence in Science Teaching Award from the Science Teachers Association of Texas, Disney’s American Teacher Award, The Vincent J. Marteka Award for Creative Science Teaching, The Marva Collins Teaching Excellence Award, and is a Distinguished Alumna of Texas State University. Jody is a firm believer that teachers who love teaching, teach children who love learning.
It is Jody’s pleasure to share her innovative, classroom-tested, wearable projects in hands-on workshops guiding teachers through the process of using wearables to reinforce specific science concepts.
