Nearly 5 years after the tragic death of engineering graduate student Abhijit Mahato, the Duke community will once again honor his memory with a photography and visualization contest.
Deadline for entries is October 21, 2012. Rules are here: http://mahato.pratt.duke.edu/contest
This year’s awards ceremony and exhibit of entries will be Nov. 7 at 5 p.m. in Schiciano Auditorium. The keynote speaker at this year’s event will be Kellar Autumn, professor and chair of biology at Lewis & Clark College, who led a research team that discovered the trick gecko feet use to stick to any surface without an adhesive.
The first two contests produced a spectacular collection of beautiful images from scientific research to exotic locations to mundane objects like lightbulbs and jelly glasses viewed in startling new ways.
