April Discount:

Want to have some more fun in your lab? How about leaving ridiculous phrases and passive-aggressive rants on your lab fridge or white board with science-themed word magnets? Like any good party game, having a limited number of words introduces creative constraints. That's what makes it so fun. 
For April get $1.50 off every Word Magnet set you buy with the code WORDSMITH! We're only allowing 5 more uses of this code because we don't usually discount them. Choose from 11 different sets ranging from Chemistry to Academia!

April Resource - Interviewing for STEM jobs:

Interviewing for jobs is tough right now, keep these in mind: Many of you might be graduating in a couple of months. It's exciting and scary! I've interviewed many scientists and put together short articles that might help:

      April News - A new "Pocket" tool for budding teenage scientists

      Our original Pocket Scientist was made for college-aged through professional scientists. To help support young scientists who are generally curious about the world and interested in a STEM career, we made a new version called the "High School Edition". It'll be officially announced soon, but I'm leaving the link here so you can get early access! If you know a teenager who would love a tool for homework and home science experiments, grab one for them so they can follow in your footsteps!

            Lab Coat Project Update:

            Lab coat naming is complete!: Thank you for everyone who voted! Both votes were very close, and the runner-ups can be voted on again for the next version. The women's version will be called "The Curie" and the men's version will be called "The Louis", both pioneers in their fields who took unique approaches to solve difficult problems (a little like The Lab Coat Project, we like to think. Keep an eye on our Instagram for more votes like this!

            Just for fun:

            Remember: Imaginary numbers aren't to be used for real things.
