Support KCVS Student-Researchers

About This Campaign

Lead by Dr. Peter Mahaffy and Dr. Brian Martin, The King's Centre for Visualization in Science (KCVS) is a research centre of The King's University College, committed to improving the public understanding of science around the world through the development of innovative ways to see and understand science. The KCVS team was recently widely congratulated for its contributions to the education and outreach efforts of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW), the organization honoured with the 2013 Nobel Peace Prize. They have also recently created tools to help make sense of the science of climate change, the particle nature of matter for elementary students, ethical issues, and fundamental ideas in modern physics and chemistry. Interactive KCVS learning tools are freely available to students, teachers, politicians, media, and the public, and are accessed every year by about a quarter million viewers from over 100 countries around the world. Since KCVS materials are made available without charge, support is needed for the undergraduate student researchers who work full time during the summer creating web materials. Your donation to KCVS will go toward enabling a deserving student to obtain experience in research and science communication by working at KCVS in the summer of 2014.
