Nanotechnology Art competition

A little old, but still interesting:

Cambridge University (UK) sponsored an art competition based off nanotechnology images. Level 9 students got a tour of the nanotech lab and then were asked to create art images based off the lab images they saw. Prizes for first and second place were awarded on July 4th.

When I first read this I had hoped it was an actual nano-photography or nano-art competition, where scientists tried to make nano-stuff, like the nano noodle bowl Japanese scientists made earlier this year. That said, I still think this is a fun way of engaging students in science and technology.
