Cities around the world are having their PRIDE parades and events in the coming weeks which makes it the perfect time to get one of the O.G. stickers that started the business. In June, if you buy just one item that is a sticker, Pocket card or Word Magnets, add the Science is for everyone or Engineering is for everyone sticker to your cart and add the code 4EVERYONE to get that $5 sticker free! We're only making this code valid for 10 uses (about 500 read this every month), so if you really want it then grab it right away.
Slap it on your laptop, your thermos, your notebook or your favorite fierce laboratory machine to show your support for creating an inclusive environment in scientific research.
Summer is my favorite time for catching up on published literature. One summer, I committed to reading 1 paper a day for 3 months, which eventually turned into a published literature review that has since been cited almost 1500 times! The key was the process. I scanned for relevance before diving in and made sure to take detailed, organized notes on each paper as I went.
Pro tip: If you can find a tablet or foldable laptop to read and annotate the papers outside in a comfy spot, it'll be much easier to keep up your pace!
Stay tuned next month for a special discount on our first line of Pocket Protectors. They will be in stock toward the end of June and ready to ship in early July!
The first 30 lab coats are being made now! This is a sample run of our intended design to let our 30 Beta Testers fix any more design flaws before full production. Keep an eye on our Instagram for more updates!
I'm just trying to log in, but for some reason the machines need trained first.
