Our Women of Science Tarot Deck is a card game that helps us tell stories about our future based on principles of science. This unique tarot deck was made possible by more than 300 Kickstarter backers.

The major arcana cards feature a fundamental scientific concept, like extinction, diversity or gravity. The 56 minor arcana cards feature inspirational women who have changed the course of STEM. We're proud to be creating a feminist tarot deck that values diversity and representation.

Science Tarot FAQ

Is this science? No, it's a game! The Women of Science Tarot Deck is a game of cards for telling stories: stories about our lives, stories about our universe, and stories about our future. We’ve updated our tarot to reflect our scientific, 21st century curiosity about how the world works. It's a modern, feminist tarot deck that anyone can enjoy.
