Welcome, Peeps fans, to The World’s Finest (and Only … As Far as We Know) Science-Themed Peeps Diorama Contest!

Are you fascinated by science, but feel like words and images are sometimes just insufficient to express the elation of a discovery, the tenacity of a graduate student, or the agony of an experiment gone horribly wrong?

Then this might just be the contest for you!

This spring, The Open Notebook and the makers of Hamilpeep, Moby Peep, Sweaters for Peepguins, and Mary Anning: Paleontolopeep (that’s Joanna Church, Helen Fields, and Kate Ramsayer) will present a science-themed Peeps diorama contest—so start peeping up ideas now!

Peeps dioramas are an art form as old as time, more or less, but have been missing one thing: a focus on science. Until now.

We want your marshmallowy tableaux of great discoveries, field work, scientific processes, history of science, model organisms…. The key is that your diorama has to be about science (all sciences welcome! We’ll even let you in, economics!) and it has to involve Peeps. Bonus points for Peeps puns.

Just remember, kids—Peeps are for crafting, not eating.

 

More details and deadlines to come in February 2019. Sign up here if you’d like to be emailed when more information is available.
