Why a photo challenge?
The Mason College of Science is a diverse community. COS and other Mason science students and alumni study, live and work around the world in almost every field; science touches all of our lives daily, and sometimes we can capture a fleeting or indescribable moment in an image that may resonate with our peers. For this photo challenge we encourage you to find what embodies your connection to science, whether it be your study session layout, lab work, your observation journal, or something found.
This photo challenge asks you, College of Science current undergraduate and graduate students, to share the science that touches your days through photos.
