In his world at that time, I was a medical student, my best female friend was a Cat In the galaxy where you can be anything be Goose shirt and my kids saw a female primary care doctor. I assured him that boys can be doctors too. Powerful example. When I do this with my elementary science students, usually kinders or 1st, they put themselves in the position! Love that the best.

We have a big discussion about all the kinds of science they can think of Cat In the galaxy where you can be anything be Goose shirt, what kinds of tools scientists can use, and then they have to draw a picture of a scientist, where they work, with appropriate tools. I get volcanologists, marine biologists in scuba gear, geologists with weather gear and rock hammers and toothbrushes, paleontologists with very elaborate fossils, zoologists with airplanes to get to all kinds of places, ME! (Yes, Science Teachers are scientists, too!) computers and GPS receivers, cameras, amazing how much more science awareness there is even with 5 and 6 year olds!
And more than half are girls and women.Great to have new female scientist role models that don’t conform to the tired “nerd” stereotype! Granted the show is a bit silly but it targets the pre-teen crowd… it strives to make a point that being a smart girl is cool! I drew a picture of my dad when I was about 6/7years old. He was a Baptist preacher, but I drew a picture of him hiding a frying pan, because he cooked, several dinners per week. I know a lab coat isn’t required.
