On January 30, the Brown Institute welcomes celebrated science photographer and MIT Research Scientist Felice Frankel. She will offer a masterclass on "Image and Meaning" and discuss her new book "Picturing Science and Engineering" (MIT Press) in which she offers a guide for creating science images that are both accurate and visually stunning. The "Image and Meaning" workshop will guide students and researchers to collaboratively develop new approaches to represent research data and concepts. The goal of the Master Class is to help scientists, writers, and visual communicators develop and share improved methods of communicating scientific concepts and technical information through images and visual representations. Wednesday January 30, Noon to 3PMBrown Institute for Media Innovation Room 176Gates Computer Science Building353 Serra MallStanford UniversityIn her evening discussion "Picturing Science and Engineering," Frankel will encourage the reader to learn by doing, following as she recreates the stages of discovery that lead to a good science visual.
