The traditional written research paper is out. Visual communication is in! At least for many lucky students who are a part of the increasing movement toward paper-alternative assignments using posters, presentations, and video to present their sci-tech research. Communicating science and technology concepts visually using graphics, images, artwork, and diagrams is not only an important learning tool, but also a common practice among researchers who share their breakthroughs through presentations, and also new media like blogs, websites, and twitter.

These web resources house massive collections of science and technology photos that can be used, with proper citation, to enrich your next powerpoint presentation and revive your conference poster!
