Your Cool Science Image entry might end up on the cover of Grow magazine

This image of the slime mold Dictyostelium discoideum earned an honorable mention in the 2012 Cool Science Images contest for David Dyer, research specialist in the soil science department.

The Why Files Cool Science Images Contest is open for entries. CALS faculty, staff and student have done well in this competition in the past and we’re sure the college will make a strong showing this year. We’re so sure that we’re already planning to put a winning image by a CALS student or faculty/staff member on the back cover of Grow magazine.
