Submit your STEM related images to the Art of STEM Competition and Exhibit!

Now in its 5th edition, Art of STEM Competition and Exhibit invites the campus community to find fresh enthusiasm in their research by exploring its artistic side and effectively communicating its significance. Special emphasis will be given to this year’s entries that distill scientific concepts and knowledge, show how science connects to everyday lives, demonstrates the importance of research, and piques the curiosity and imagination of those with no or little experience in specific STEM fields. 

The competition is open to Case Western Reserve University faculty, students and staff, Cleveland Institute of Art students who collaborate with a member of the Case Western Reserve community, as well as high school students from Cuyahoga County.
