The Art-Science Connection: Students Create Art Inspired by Extracurricular Lab Investigations
Hegedus, Tess; Segarra, VerĂ³nica A.; Allen, Tawannah G.; Wilson, Hillary; Garr, Casey; Budzinski, Christina
Science Teacher, v83 n7 p25-31 Oct 2016
The authors developed an integrated science-and-art program to engage science students from a performing arts high school in hands-on, inquiry based lab experiences. The students participated in eight biology-focused investigations at a local university with undergraduate mentors. After the laboratory phase of the project, the high school students were charged with generating ideas and producing original science-inspired art to strengthen their science communication skills and comprehension. A culminating exhibit allowed the student artists to share their scientific insights.
