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.

Skills & Careers in Science Writing is a free, evening course which trains graduate students to distil scientific ideas into engaging, reader-friendly stories for lay audiences and provides networking and exposure to science writing and communication professionals.
