If you caught that awesome GE commercial that ran during the Oscars, asking, what if female scientists were treated like rock stars? then no surprise that they’re extending the campaign in a very 2017 way: With a SciMoji women of science emoji sticker pack.
Install the app from the App Store, and you can respond to WHERE R U with a photo of astronaut Joan Higgenbotham suiting up. Having a good day? Text a sticker that reads I’m as positive as a proton! Or kick off a hot sexting session with your geeky sweetheart, using the sticker of carbon scientist Millie Dresselhaus that declares, we have an ionic bond.
It’s a fairly diverse group of 11 heroes of science on 24 stickers — several of whom worked for GE of course — although I am missing my fantasy BFF Katherine Johnson.
Just know that it may look like a keyboard (like Bitmoji), but it’s a sticker app.
To use it, download the app then enter an iMessage conversation > click the App Store Icon (looks like an A) next to the texting field > Click the 4 Dots > Click the SciMoji stickers.
Oh and it’s only available for iOS and iMessage. Perhaps there’s some quantitative, peer-reviewed research indicating that women of science don’t use Android phones.
Download the SciMoji women of science emoji sticker pack free at the App Store for iOS devices.
