Title: Picturing Science: Museum Scientists and Imaging Technologies
Url: http://www.amnh.org/exhibitions/picturing-science
Publisher: American Museum of Natural History
Description: How do we look into the world of germs? Or anything else for that matter? The dedicated scholars at the American Museum of Natural History have created this fine exhibit to complement an in situ exhibit at their institution. The exhibition was curated by Mark Siddal, in the division of invertebrate zoology. Visitors can browse the images, which were developed using infrared photography, scanning electron microscopes, and CT scanners. The images include a up-close-and-personal image of an Atlantic spotter mackerel, details of the wing structure of an Oriental hornet, and an amazing image of a troika of scorpions. Moving along, the Video Gallery area includes a nice preview of the exhibit which may inspire curious parties to make a special trip to the Museum. The site is rounded out by the inclusion of some resources for educators, such as lesson plans and an interactive quiz.
