CFSES Wins 2nd Place in EFRC Poetry of Science Contest
Following the Energy Frontier Research Center (EFRC) tradition, during each Principal Investigators’ meeting there is an optional contest designed to educate, inspire and entertain an intelligent, but not expert, audience with the extraordinary science, innovation, and people in the EFRCs. In 2015, the 32 EFRCs were challenged to convey the wonder of science using poetry inspired by a scientific image.
Sixteen teams took up the challenge, and submitted a rich variety of images and poems that evoked the complexities, splendor, and awe of energy science. The CFSES team was awarded 2nd place in the juried competition.
The entry that receives the most votes from the public from September 30 to October 21, 2015 11:59 pm will be given the People’s Choice Award at the Principal Investigators’ Meeting on October 26. Vote for your favorite entries here: http://www.energyfrontier.us/poetry
