13th ANNUAL MATERIALS VISUALIZATION COMPETITION 2021
MVC is a scientific, visual, and artistic competition sponsored by the Department of Materials Science and Engineering (MatSE) and the Materials Research Institute (MRI). Through the creativity and visualization of our researchers, MVC celebrates the quality of research in materials at Penn State and promotes awareness of materials science. Entry is open to all Penn State undergraduates, graduates, post-docs, and faculty working on materials-related topics.
Competition is open during the spring semester and submissions can be entered in one of three categories: scientific, visual, and computation. All submitted images are judged by a panel defined by MatSE and MRI. After deliberation, the panel chooses the top three entries for each category and one image that represents the Best of Show. The People’s Choice Award is chosen from all entries which are displayed online for the public to view and vote on electronically. The image that received the most votes is the winner of the People’s Choice Award.
