Whether in the classroom or research laboratory, on a regular basis I find myself using the phrase "A picture is worth a thousand words." It is this simple idea that flavors my teaching of both introductory science topics and cutting edge research discoveries. At some basic level, we are all students and we all need visual and revealing "images" to create a teachable moment, concentrate a thought, or communicate a message.
