Pipette Kids Science Coloring and Activity Book was made by students and faculty members at the UT Health San Antonio Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences. Book proceeds support science outreach educational programs for K-12 students conducted by the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences at UT Health San Antonio.
He wants to be a cancer biologist so that he can do experiments that will help cure his grandma’s cancer.
She wants to be a biomedical engineer so she can invent cool things to help people. Her favorite class in school is science.
She is the coolest teacher ever because she has VR goggles that allow students to meet scientists of the past.
Did you ever wonder why you catch colds? Have you ever wanted to build a microscope? Then join Taq and Poly as they meet scientists of the past, present and future. Topics include: DNA, Nutrition, Anatomy, Microbiology, Careers in Science, Women in Science, and over seventeen different activities to try at home. Over 100 pages of fun science coloring and activity pages!
Bulk/classroom packs are available for a discounted rate. For more information, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Kids of all ages can grow their own bacteria colonies, unlock new species, and learn while having fun. This colorful game is intended for audiences in elementary and middle school. The game was created by Liza Knipscher who graduated with a degree in biomedical visualization.

I was enrolled in AP Biology, where we had to learn about cellular processes in great detail…I remember being so enthralled by what a cell is capable of doing, and the intricacies of the mechanisms behind its actions. Since then, I just wanted to learn more.
Dr. Ramaswamy Sharma
My first chemistry laboratory experiment when we titrated acids and bases lured me into science. The need for accuracy and precision and the excitement as the phenolphthalein dye changed color were enough reasons for me to pursue a career in science and I have never had any reason to look back.
I am a Biomedical Engineering Ph.D. student specifically I study nanomaterials. In the lab, we're trying to solve problems and we're trying to find solutions which are unknown.
I always wanted to know why things were happening. Research gives you the opportunity to do that and allows you to learn what's outside of the textbook. It's exciting to me.

Growing up in Chicago, no one talked about pursuing a career in research. It's important for students to know at an early age that research is a rewarding and challenging possibility, It's also important for women of color to know that they can do great things in STEM fields.
Pipette Kids was funded by the President’s Translational and Entrepreneurial Research Fund from the Office of Technology Commercialization at UT Health San Antonio.
