Scientists may not think of themselves as artists, but there are times when science and research activities lead to exceptionally beautiful visual images. This spring Rodgers Library sponsored “Sharing the Beauty of Science” a contest where we invited faculty, graduate and undergraduate students from Science, Engineering and Nursing to share with us the beauty of science by submitting up two images per individual. Our top three winners come from the departments of Biological Sciences, Geological Sciences, and Metallurgical and Materials Engineering.
Congratulations to all the winners for generating such high quality images and for sharing with us the beauty of their work!
