The purpose of this study is to try to find out how the fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth graders perceive science teachers through the pictures they have drawn. A qualitative research method was used in the research. A total of 246 students studying in 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th grade, using the appropriate sampling method, constitute the study group of the research. The students were asked to draw pictures when asked "what comes to mind when you think about a science teacher." In the research, it was found that most of the students perceive the science teacher as "human," while a few of them perceive it as a cartoon character or a famous scientist like "Einstein." The students reflected the science teacher's gender more often as female than male. While about one-third of the students drew science teachers as in the classroom, none of the students reflected the teachers in their pictures as in non-school learning environments like a museum or a science center.
