|The Beaker family lives for friendly science in a friendly society. Gundrun and Bjorn were the leading minds in some of the cutting edge geo-technology that made the town what it is today. Now with two young children in tow they're thinking that perhaps it's time to take their love of science to another town, maybe someplace a little stranger?|

The Beaker family is a pre-made family that first appeared in Strangetown from The Sims 2 and returned in the downloadable neighborhood of Aurora Skies from The Sims 3 Store and Oasis Landing from The Sims 3: Into the Future.
The family from The Sims 2 consists of Loki Beaker, Circe Beaker, and their test guinea pig, Nervous Subject. They reside in a large mansion on a hill, complete with a cell-like room in the basement for Nervous, and several suspicious-looking machines, which are mostly career and aspiration rewards. Their address is 1 Tesla Court, located near the alien crash site. The Beakers have a longstanding rivalry with the Curious family, probably stemming from the fact that Vidcund Curious was Circe's first flame. On Loki's side of the family, he and his sister are possibly of Scandinavian descent, judging from the last name of their maternal grandparents, Halfdanarson, and first names of all their relatives. Circe may be of Greek descent on her father's side of the family.
In The Sims 3, the family returns in the downloadable neighborhood of Aurora Skies. Bjorn, Gundrun, Loki and Erin are present. The family also returned in Oasis Landing. Loki's genetically engineered children, Atom and Ceres, were transported into the future through a scientific experiment.
An official Maxis recreation of The Sims 2 Beaker family was uploaded to the The Sims 4 Gallery on March 19, 2019, marking the 19 year anniversary of The Sims. In addition to Loki, Circe, and Nervous, the household also features young Atom and Ceres as Loki's children.
