Visualizing Science Contest

2014 Winner by Brad J. Gemmell
The College of Natural Sciences is looking for images that celebrate the extraordinary beauty of science and the scientific process. In essence, we want images that capture the moment where science and art collide.
The Top 6 images will receive prizes, and the top prize is $1000. All winning images are prominently displayed on campus and shared at a special CNS reception and on the college website. You can see example images from the 2013 and 2014 winners. Your images will help us tell stories about the great scientific work that is happening in CNS.
