Envisioning the Invisible
The Envisioning the Invisible image contest is way to explore and explain our world. Though the skills honed across disciplines at Duke University are as diverse as the students who employ them, every field of study values students who have mastered the art of explaining dense research through visuals such as pictures and images. Images can stimulate interest in a novel concept or provide further insight into an established theory.
Join the elite group of researchers who have become visual gurus by submitting your greatest work to the Envisioning the Invisible image contest for display at the Mahato Memorial event and a chance to win one of four CASH PRIZES!
The Mahato Memorial event honors Abhijit Mahato, a former engineering graduate student who was tragically murdered on Friday, January 18, 2008. He valued activities that bridged the gaps between the science/engineering and social sciences/humanities disciplines, including sports, chess and photography. By holding this multi-disciplinary image contest, we hope to celebrate Abhijit's life by bringing together the graduate and professional community at Duke in a wonderful display of our talents and some friendly competition.
