    Thank you for participating in this Your Shot assignment. I know it was challenging, and I am glad you took it head-on and created some incredible images. What made this assignment tough wasn't the absence of subjects, but identifying them right under our noses. It’s easy to look at a sophisticated biology or robotics lab and identify it as a science, but it takes time and effort to recognize science in our everyday surroundings. In the end, you did a good job of it!

    I loved the way you staged this shot. Very creative way to explain the workings of cars and their dependence on gasoline. Loved the contrasting colors and the reflection in this image. Well done!!

    Curating your images was also a tricky job, but it was a great experience for me. There were images of microbiology, robotics, and space sciences, as well as the basics of physics, biology, and medicine. As a result, each photo represents a specific kind of science.

    I hope you enjoyed working on this assignment as much as I did. I can see how many of you got hooked on the game of seeking out scientific concepts in everything around us, and that was the whole point of this activity. I went through all the images multiple times and noticed a progression during the course of this assignment, so I would call this a success.

    Although this assignment has ended, I hope you all continue to look at the world through the lens of science and be mesmerized by the beauty of our surroundings!
