“The most beautiful thing we can experience is the mysterious—it is the source of all true art and science.” ~ Albert Einstein

The 2012 Photomicrography Competition is a perfect combination of art and science, a delightful example of the awe-inspiring beauty that even the smallest pieces of the natural world possess.  Browse through the winners and finalists to view, with crystal clarity, the symmetrical shape of a snow crystal or the fearsome vision of a mosquito.   These entries into the contest, sponsored by Nikon Small World, would be attention-grabbers in any classroom.  They are perfect for story starters, research ideas, or just intriguing screen savers!

By the way, I learned about this contest from my new, favorite blog, It’s Okay to Be Smart.  If you love science, this is the place for you!
