You've probably heard plenty about the new AI tools available. We played around with it for weeks on end to come up with what we think are some kick-ass sciencey cavases to add some vibrant colors to your lab in the middle of winter. Use code COLORFUL10 to get 10% off these canvases in January!

January Resource - ChatGPT:

This AI Q&A Chat tool has been everywhere in the news lately. It's great and terrible at the same time. It will definitely be misused and technology will have to adapt to prevent problems in academics and your career. But, you have to at least play with it to understand what it's capable of. From re-writing paragraphs to composing answers to detailed technical questions, it's going to change the way we work. Spend at least 20 minutes with it now and it may spur some new ideas!

      January News - Apply to be a Beta Tester!

      We need Beta testers to give extensive feedback actually using the lab coat before we go to production. Fill out the 10-minute application here to be considered for a free lab coat! Warning: This will take some time commitment, and if we don't receive your feedback, you'll be charged for the coat. Expect about 10-20 hours total and be the first to get an awesome new lab coat design!

      If you know a single scientist or engineer who wears a lab coat and has not taken this survey, we need their voice added! It's only an 8-minute form. Forward this link to them and tell them how awesome this is going to be when everyone contributes. 


            Just for fun:

            Starting a semester in January calls for the doors on the right.
