International Science & Engineering Visualization ChallengeJune 27 through August 16, 2009
Some of science's most powerful statements are not made in words. From the diagrams of DaVinci to Rosalind Franklin's x-rays, visualization of research has a long and literally illustrious history. To illustrate is to enlighten.
The National Science Foundation (NSF) and the journal Science created the International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge to celebrate that grand tradition -- and to encourage its continued growth. The spirit of the competition is for communicating science, engineering and technology for education and journalistic purposes.
