You’re invited to submit an image to Science in Society’s 2017 Scientific Images Contest.
This contest connects the public with real, contemporary Northwestern research through high-quality visuals. Winning images are professionally printed and displayed in museums, libraries, and galleries across Chicago and Evanston.
Ten students from the bio-art class at Evanston Township High School (ETHS) in Evanston, Illinois, visited Northwestern University in February as part of a collaboration inspired by Science in Society’s annual scientific images contest.
You can now download the "Beauty of Science" app featuring winning images from our annual scientific images contest for FREE from the iTunes store! Showcasing all of the winning images from 2010-2014, this app puts innovative research being conducted at Northwestern University right in the palm of your hand.
The 2014 Scientific Images Contest launched with a day full of outreach at Evanston Township High School last month. More than 550 students from art and science classes visited the gallery during the school day. But, this year, the scientific images weren’t the only artwork on display.
We are thrilled to announce the winners of the 2014 Northwestern Scientific Images Contest, "Capturing the Beauty of Science."
This year's winning images span a wide range of disciplines, including physics and astronomy, biomedical engineering, plant biology and chemistry. Come to our gallery opening event at Evanston Township High School on October 15 to view the images in person and meet the winning scientists.
We are now accepting entries from Northwestern faculty, students and staff for the 2014 Scientific Images Contest! Submit your most captivating research image to win up to $250. Don't think your images are cool enough? Think again! What you might see as everyday, others will find to be extraordinary.
For the past four years, the Northwestern University Scientific Images Contest, “Capturing the Beauty of Science,” has brought stunning images and innovative research into the community through public exhibits and talks. Now, you can bring the beauty of science into your home with the help of our online Imagekind store!
Radha Boya and Keith Brown have more in common than winning images in the 2013 Scientific Images Contest. They are also both postdoctoral fellows in Chad Mirkin’s research group.
This is not the first time two scientists from the same lab have placed in the contest. Andrew Koltonow and Mark McClendon, both from the Stupp group, took home first and third place prizes, respectively, in 2012. But, this is the first time labmates have earned the top two spots, with Boya nabbing first place and Brown tying for second.
