Science As Art Competition

“Science as Art” Competition - $400 Prizes

Visualization methods provide an important tool in materials science for the analysis and presentation of scientific work. Images can often convey information in a way that tables of data or equations cannot match. Occasionally, scientific images transcend their role as a medium for transmitting information, and contain the aesthetic qualities that transform them into objects of beauty and art.

As a special feature of the 2011 MRS Fall Meeting in Boston, we continued the popular "Science as Art" competition. The competition was open to all registered meeting attendees, and entries were on display in the Hynes Convention Center. Multiple first-place and second-place awards of $400 and $200, respectively, were presented to the following winning entries at the meeting.
