Winners of Capturing Science Contest

Last fall, UGA Libraries and the Office of Research sponsored the first-ever Capturing Science Contest. Our contest invited UGA students to communicate STEM concepts using any media or genre. We received over 70 submissions covering STEM concepts from a variety of disciplines. We received paintings, textile art, music videos, animated tutorials, podcasts, children’s books, programs, events, and other media. Entries were evaluated by our judges according to the following criteria: clarity of expression; creativity; and appeal to a broad audience. Thanks to the many people who helped make this contest a success: UGA Libraries Administration and the Office of Research for their financial support.
