Faculty of Science

Science Photo Contest

Every year, the Faculty of Science holds a photo contest to showcase the unique and amazing scientific adventures of Saint Mary's students, alumni, faculty and staff—both on campus and around the globe. Winning photographs are showcased in an annual science calendar, and the top three submissions receive prizes.

The 2017 Science Photo Contest is now closed. Check back in August 2018 for information about next year's contest.
