Advances in video production and scientific visualization are among the most exciting and noteworthy outcomes of the progress that has been made in computational science. Whether it is the immersive environments of “Avatar,” the ubiquity of high quality video capture on even the smallest of devices, or the visualization of complex mathematical, physical, and biological phenomena, computational science has enabled us to see things as we have never seen them before.
With this in mind, The Neukom Institute is delighted to announce the 2013 “Seeing Science” competition, open to all Dartmouth students (undergraduate and graduate) to promote visual approaches to science understanding:
(Note that the explanation of a scientific idea might very well be completely expository and hopefully, highly creative in nature-- i.e., have fun with it!)
Prizes: 1st Place -- $1,000, 2nd Place -- $750 (two awards), 3rd Place -- $500
Scientific visualization comes in many forms. Video files can be uploaded by signing in at https://caligari.dartmouth.edu/~neukom/seeing_science with your DND address and then, choosing the file to upload.
Websites, computer applications and mobile apps should send your information to Neukom Institute.
Acceptable file formats:
All videos will be featured on the Neukom website and the Neukom playlist on the Dartmouth YouTube channel.
Email questions to Dan Rockmore.
