A new initiative in educational visualization: ARTEMiS (short for "ART for Engineering, Mathematics, and Science") combines the principles of visual communication with the tools of modern computer graphics. The resulting tools that the ARTEMiS team creates are visualizations that enhance teaching and learning in mathematics, science, and engineering.
In the field of biology, freely available software packages allow students to explore molecular structure in 3D. However, few present the materials in a format clear enough to use outside the classroom or in self-guided study. In addition, most 3D software packages neglect to portray the four-fold structure of proteins, a critical component to understanding the complexities of change and disease.
