Calling all science teachers! It’s time to experiment with some new science T-shirts for work this year! Whether you teach biology, chemistry, physics, or earth science, there are plenty of funny shirts to show your enthusiasm for the subject. My hypothesis is that at least one of these will make you and your students smile.
(Disclaimer: This article was written by an English teacher, so please forgive all of the science jokes and puns. I cannot help myself.)
1. Jokey and informative, an unbeatable combo
This shirt will have your students and colleagues laughing but will also act as a learning tool that your students will definitely visualize on test day.
Buy it: Mightychondria T-Shirt at Amazon
2. If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em
Selfie may be an antiquated term in students’ lexicon, but their vocabulary is changing so rapidly that even if you think you’ve got it, you’ve made them cringe. Make them cringe harder and secretly smile with this science T-shirt.

7. A shirt you can wear periodically
True story: I try to bring the periodic table of elements into conversation with my chemistry colleagues often so that I can feel that I speak their scientific language. If you are also looking for chemistry joke ideas, you can use mine where I respond “Potassium” instead of “K.” Oddly, I get no reaction.

8. For optimistic chemistry teachers
Here’s just one way chemistry can spread positivity! I may be cross-contaminating my science jokes, but you get it.
