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.
Now in its fifth year, the Scientific Images Contest has become a landmark event for Science in Society. Each spring Northwestern scientists submit images connected to the contemporary research on campus. A panel of artists, scientists and community leaders the select prize-winning images which tour venues across Evanston and Chicago.
In March, Science in Society (SiS) launched a new initiative in partnership with Wendell Phillips Academy High School in Chicago, Illinois. Through the support of The Herman M. and Bea L. Silverstein Foundation, Science in Society has developed and implemented a genetics curriculum for high school students in two honors biology classrooms at Wendell Phillips.
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.
