Science As Art Calendar

The beauty of art and science

The Faculty of Science has produced the Science As Art calendar for over 13 years. It’s a collection of striking photographs and images that encourage people to recognize the beauty of science taking place in labs, field work, daily routines and travels. Each year, Dalhousie science alumni, faculty, staff and students submit their own works of science art for use in the calendar, which is then mailed to over 8,000 Dal Science alumni.
