2015 Scientific Images winners spring into Spring

Students and faculty at Northwestern may have heard of the Scientific Images Contest, but the program is far more than a cash-prize competition. Selected research-based images are professionally mounted for exhibitions across the Chicago area. Each exhibition is accompanied by events and activities which provide key science outreach training and opportunities for the researchers involved.

Life after Science Club

One of the hallmarks of Science in Society's approach to mission-driven community engagement is committing to the long-term. Rome wasn't built in a day and we believe supporting, encouraging, and inspiring science learners (or learners of any other subject for that matter!) isn't the work of a single afternoon or one-off event. It takes a community. It takes dedication and it takes time.

Take part in science education & outreach opportunities!

Graduate students and post docs (and even faculty and staff) can have the best intentions. We constantly meet motivated scholars looking to give back to the community but they’re not sure where to start.
