We won the Beanpot, then we won it again. We found beauty in wintertime trees, and learned how some of their secrets could be useful to scientists. We built drones to study penguins from above, and studied why cannabis makes you high. This and much more, all through the lenses of News@Northeastern’s award-winning photographers.
