In order to support the upcoming March for Science that is happening on April 22nd 2017, we created an object that we think represents scientists and their main activities in a simple way.

This knitted lightbulb is quick and easy to make and weather appropriate; it is made out of neon yellow yarn to signify that it is turned on.

It can be used as an add-on (sewn onto hats and other garments) or as a crafty sign/symbol.

There is also a crochet version available: www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/i-think-therefore-i-marc...

Marches are happening in Europe too!
