Dr. Heidi Gardner is the founder of Science on a postcard and a Research Fellow at the University of Aberdeen, focusing on efficiency of clinical trails. She started science On A Postcard to demonstrate that scientists are people just like everyone else, a diverse group of people from all kinds of backgrounds, beliefs and genders, and the diversity in characteristics only serves to improve the science that is done!!

Science On A Postcard started in 2017, with two postcard designs and an Instagram account.
Today there are over 100 different products for sale; you can buy enamel badges, lanyards, tote bags, notebooks and lots more science goodies. These products have been supporting fabulous causes, scientists and science enthusiasts all over the world.

We discussed: 

  • How Science on a Postcard is smashing stereotypes, creating a community and shining a light on bad culture. 
  • Going from the idea to establishing the business all in the space of a domestic flight;
  • Optimising your working time and spaces to best suit your needs;
  • How to have a significant side hustle whilst still doing a job you love;
  • Spotting the signs of depression and managing it;
  • Rebranding whilst maintaining the brand essence.
