Nerd calender


Published: Saturday 30 September 1995

American scientists are trying their best to change the popular impression that they are all nerds. Standmuffins of Science is a 1996 calendar with boffins for models. The photographs show them exercising their muscles, not their brains, through skating and running. But they haven't discarded mentation altogether: biographical details under some of the pictures state the models' favourite bacteria, their favourite subatomic particle. Pointedly, however, the calender has no female scientist lightening the essential nerdishness of models in lab coats.
