NSF Visualization2008 NSF / AAAS Visualization Challenge
Stop, Look, and Learn

An arresting visualization will stop us in our tracks. A revealing visualization will show us more the longer we look at it. But a winning visualization will do all of that…and help us learn something new as well. Create a science or engineering visualization that addresses all three of these elements and you could be one of this year’s recipients of the International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge awards.
Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge.

The 2008 International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge is co-sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the journal Science, published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).

This is your opportunity to create a science or engineering visualization that elegantly reveals and explains our world. This is your chance to achieve the recognition you and your team deserve.  The 2008 International Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge is co-sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the journal Science, published by the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS).
