Twelfth Annual Materials Visualization Competition 2020
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. New for 2020 is the addition of the People’s Choice Award. All entries were available online for the public to view and vote on electronically. The image that received the most votes was the winner of the People’s Choice Award.
