IMAGES of AGRICULTURAL and BIOLOGICAL ENGINEERING VISUAL CHALLENGE 2 Engineers are proficient in science and technology — and are good communicators as well. In fact, engineers have a unique responsibility to communicate technical concepts to a larger audience. Though traditionally done with words and numbers, Resource asked readers to communicate in images. To call attention to and celebrate the visual aspects of agricultural and biological engineering, we are delighted to present these selected entries received for our Agricultural and Biological Engineering Visual Challenge 2. The beauty and meaning of one's work, research developments, and your Society's divisions come to life on these pages, showing those outside the ABE field: This is what we do." Acknowledging that the selection process was inevitably subjective, the Resource staff is confident that these photos provide a glimpse into the vast variety of activities, work places, and surprises an ag and bio engineering career can offer. Thank you to all respondents in our quest for ag and bio art. We look forward to showcasing entries again in Visual Challenge 3.
