Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge

February 27, 2012

February 3, 2012 Science

In a special issue, Colin Norman, News Editor of Science, reports on the entries for the 2011 International Science and Engineering Visualization Challenge.

Metabolomic Eye, Bryan W. Jones (Photography - 1st Place)

The challenge has taken place for the past 9 years and is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and The purpose is to “promote cutting-edge efforts to visualize scientific data, principles, and ideas—skills that are critical for communication among scientists and between scientists and the general public, especially students.”

Imagine, creating images for communication? Sound familiar? This is taken from

Chapter 132 Maine Learning Results: Parameters for Essential Instruction- Visual Arts B3 Making Meaning, Pre-K-2: Students create art works that communicate ideas and feelings and demonstrate skill in the use of meida, tools, and techniques.

This year there were 212 entries from 33 countries. The finalists were selected and posted and visitors were asked to select their favorite. The “People’s Choice” was selected by the 3200 votes that came in. The winners are posted on an online slide show at http://scim.ag/y41Bht or at www.nsf.gov/news/scivis. You can read the entire article at http://www.sciencemag.org/content/335/6068/525.full.

The National Science Foundation encourages entries and the competition opens May 31, 2012. You can find information on their website (2nd link above).

Thank you to my colleague, Peter Bernard, at the Maine Department of Education, for sharing the link to this information.

Photo History Project

May 27, 2011

Photography Class Five Town History Project – Camden Hills Regional High School

Thank you to art teacher Carolyn Brown for submitting this blog post.

Kevin Johnson

Students in Ms. Brown’s Photo Studio classes at Camden Hills Regional High School are working on a “Then and Now” photo history project of the Five Towns CSD, including photos from Appleton, Hope, Lincolnville, Camden and Rockport.

Guest photographer and photo archivist Kevin Johnson, of the Penobscot Marine Museum, visited classes in late May. He showed students historic photos from the Eastern Illustrating photo archive, which includes photos of the Five Towns shot between 1909 and 1947. He explained how these photos were made with large cameras and glass plate negatives, and how he and his team of archivists have been cleaning, restoring and digitizing the glass plates. Students then tried out Kevin’s large-format camera, to get a feel for how the old photos were set up and shot.

Kevin Johnson, Heather Eaton

Students have selected old photos from the collection to reshoot with modern tools. The classes will select the best shots and create 25 pairs of images- one of the old shots with the scene as it looks today. These photos will be matted and framed, and become a permanent collection for CHRHS. Additionally, local historians will work with students to give background history about the history of the Five Towns area depicted in the photos. Eventually, the photos will be available on the Penobscot Marine Museum website, and mapped using GIS tools.

This project is supported by Youth Arts, the Bisbee Fund, and a donation from Laurie Adams. Anyone interested in learning more about the project, please contact teacher Carolyn Brown at Carolyn_Brown@fivetowns.net

Follow up to Webinar

April 11, 2011

Painting a Picture: Image Processing for Digital Narratives

On March 3rd MLTI (Maine Learning Technology Initiative) presented a webcast called Painting a Picture: Imagine Processing for Digital Narratives. The facilitator was Ruben Puentedura who provided great information and instruction that can easily be adapted to use with students.

iphoto and Acorn were both tools that Ruben demonstrated to help construct digital narratives such as digital storytelling.  The TPCK and the SAMR models were referenced since MLTI uses both of these models. You can learn more about the models by clicking here.

The session was offered twice on March 3rd. I attended the 7PM session but you can access either session at http://maine121.org/?page_id=410
