Scientists Drawn By Seventh-Graders

Children draw and describe their perception of scientists before and after visiting FermiLab. Quoting from the project description page:

Few young people have never met a scientist or engineer and most have an opportunity to see where they work. In 1985, middle school teachers asked us if they could bring their students to Fermilab. They helped us develop Beauty and Charm so that those students who came to a working research laboratory would come with a purpose.
