Heroes of Science laser-engraved tree ornaments

Etsy seller Eavesmade has a fine collection of science themed needlepointed laser-engraved festive ornaments for your Midwinter Science Tree. Featured scientists include Carl Sagan, Charles Darwin, Rachel Carson, Gregor Mendel, Elizabeth Blackwell, Marie Curie, Johannes Kepler, Rosalind Franklin, Dmitri Mendeleev, Galileo, William Harvey, Stephen Hawking, Jane Goodall, Copernicus, and Alfred Russel Wallace -- 20 in all! I just bought a complete set for this year's tree.

Heroes Of Science: Non-Denominational Festive Ornaments (Thanks, Sharon!)


  1. AS the winter holiday; the celebration of greenery, life, the oncoming promise of spring which hold in our hearts as we wait through the cold, is older than the church who usurped it, I would support, and do support the deeply green nature of this holiday and hope that this edition of this pro-science effort to make great tree decortations, is added to with deeply green ornaments.

    We wait the holiday proclaims for the return of green, who better top help focus on the coming “spring” of a balanced abundant rich ecology than “Rachel Carson”


    1. Christmas is a lot greener for those of us who live in the Southern Hemisphere. It’s in the middle of summer, three days after the longest day of the year. I thoroughly recommend it!

      I think these wood ornaments need a little shiny ribbon threaded through the top to festive them up.

  2. Hi,

    They’re OK

    But they’re not really “festive” are they?

    It’s the one time of year when I want glitz, tinsel and general spanglyness.
