This article reports on an analysis of eight Turkish grade (5-8) science textbooks for the presentation of scientists. A qualitative method was used in the research. A total of 8 textbooks were analyzed, two at each grade level. The analysis was framed by an analytical tool developed and validated by Yacoubian, Al-Khatib & Mardirossian (2017). When the data was analyzed, the following results emerged; scientist's presentations in textbooks middle-aged or elderly, male, white, westerner, lonely, aims for discovering the truth that is out there, engage in an enterprise that is objective, does work which involves dealing with direct evidence and produces end -results that are durable and fixed over time have been determined to have stereotype characters and jobs. It is possible to say in the context of analysis that scientists do not have stereotypes such as being bald, wearing eyeglasses, disheveled, wearing a white lab coat, working only in the lab, engaging in dull, non-creative, non-imaginative work, and working within eurocentric paradigms. Finally, it is possible to say that they are neutral in terms of features such as having an innate interest in science, crazy, objective, unemotional, competitive, external factors do not influence their work, following the scientific method, conducting mostly experiments in the lab and work only in the lab.
