Watch the finalists for best video and vote for your favorite!

Aesthetic Species Maps

Using a run-of-the-mill flatbed scanner, artist David Montgomery turned his scavenged collection of seed pods, shells, shrubs, and weeds into animated, time-lapse masterpieces that celebrate the subtle differences between individuals of the same species.

Mimicking Collagen

Johns Hopkins University material scientist Michael Yu explains how synthetic collagen mimics developed by his lab could one day be used to image tumors and deliver drugs designed to annihilate them. Animation by the INBT Animation Studio.

The Happy Cell

"You're scanning along, you're looking, and all of a sudden, there it is, you just know, that's the one." While this may sound like the search for the perfect mate, it's actually a researcher describing how to spot a happy, thriving cell. Produced by Irish filmmaker, Hugh McGrory, the video features microscopy images taken by Yale University postdocs along with their commentary.

Tiny Snow-Makers

Montana State University plant scientists share the surprising finding that proteins expressed by microbes blown up into the clouds can serve as the nucleating core around which snowflakes form—resulting in snow!

The Weaver Ant

Follow Mark Moffett—photographer, entomologist, and E.O. Wilson's prodigy—into the unforgiving jungles of Cambodia where he studies, eats, and often gets bitten by weaver ants.

In the slide with the molecule of water it seems that water is HO2, rather than H2O!

When I was a kid, Mark lived in the house next to mine, he was a significant influence on me and definitely fueled my love of science.  I think it is great how he is making his life's work accessible to the general public... Being an educator for 17 years, I know first hand that children enjoy learning things in a direct down to earth way and I think Mark is making great strides in that direction! keep up the great work!
