Creative Approaches to Scientific Visualization

Don’t miss this great event: we have invited two pioneers in Science Communication and Scientific Visualization. Bonnie and Justin will demonstrate  new and creative approaches to the modeling and communication of scientific knowledge. Communicating science to different and larger audiences  has been a topic very dear to the participants in the ArtSci Salon.

This event will kick off the ArtSci Salon series at the new venue at the Fields Institute
