Science Art exists on a continuum. At one end of the spectrum is scientific illustration. This is art in the service of science used to teach concepts or visualize big ideas. At the other end is art inspired by science: plenty of art flash but short on science....
The Illinois Science Council is delighted to partner with the University of Chicago to bring students’ science writing to Science Unsealed for the second year in a row!
In October 2019, Science Unsealed editors-in-chief Dana Simmons and Ben Marcus made a guest appearance at the University of Chicago in a class designed to teach students how to communicate science to people like you. For the next few months, Science Unsealed will publish 15 articles from the students in this course. Each student had the opportunity to select a topic they were interested in, revise their work under the direction of their instructors, and work directly with the Science Unsealed editors to prepare their work for publication. And boy, are we excited to show you what they’ve created. The topics range from the question of whether plants can learn to the question why cancer is so hard to beat. We’re confident that you’ll find a topic you’ll enjoy reading about.
Here are the blogs we published from the last round of UChicago students:
- Let’s Talk Quantum—A Revolution in Communication
- I Can Steal Your Data in Less Than 10 Minutes
- The Space Dust In Your Backyard Can Change the Course of History
- The Moving Cells that Make Our Pups the Pups They Are Today
- A DIY Guide to Building a Quantum Computer
