Nostromics Science Educator Friends
We personally know and trust these longtime friends of ours who are science educators or scholars:
Anna Maria Lombardi – An astronomy and science historian who is a leading Italian Kepler expert. She wrote a scientific biography of Kepler and an Italian edition of his work Somnium. Most of her writings are in Italian, but we are bugging her to publish more in English.
Massimo Mogi Vicentini – A freelance graphic designer producing 3D, videos and models for science teaching and presentation. He got a Non Interactive Media – Honorable Mention at the 2005 Science & Engineering Visualization Challenge by Science Magazine and NSF, and the Best Video Award – Educational Videos for the Web at Vedere la Scienza 2007 – International Scientific TV, Film and AV Media Festival. Free downloads at his web site: 3D science videos and animations. Mogi is a sort of Renaissance man who builds physical models at his machine shop and virtual ones with 3D software.
