Today we celebrate science, technology, engineering, art and math. Good time to announce an art and science project in the planning! #STEAM
I introduced you to scientist (y amiga) Maria, originally from Colombia, now in the UK (Sanger Institute). In 2018, we discuss a public engagement project, originally scheduled for 2019 and includes travel. A glitch brings a pause to things. We reconnect to one more time look at working together (pandemic restrictions nix travel).
The last few weeks we connect on Zoom to talk art, science, microbes, parasites and education (yes, yes…and a little politics).
A new plan is emerging. #process
Maria works to organize a list, including scientists from the US, Belgium, Ireland, Uk, Portugal, Germany, Uruguay, Malawi, Spain, Venezuela, Colombia and Australia. She includes their organism (microbes and parasites) of interest, the disease they cause, and the organs in the human body affected.
I narrow down 5 – 6 scientists from the list. I’m open, Though I naturally gravitate to particular organisms and organ systems. I believe 3-4 have agreed to work with us so far.
General idea (as of now) includes I meet each scientist and with their help (their research material), I create a visual. #WhereArtistAndScientistMeet #Intersection
You’ll get a glimpse into the process. You learn. Perhaps you participate…
Do you have questions? Do you have information? Do you want a create a visual of your own? I don’t know, you tell me. Let’s see…
#SomethingCreative #AnExperiment #Engage #Educate
Phase 1, in the planning. We’re thinking about a name that includes all the characters involved.
…The Artist, the Scientist, the Microbes and Parasites…
#Art #Science #Collaborate
I’ve been reading (thanks for info Robin @ Phoenix College).
Art… it brings a lot to the picture… →Interdisciplinary STEM education reform: dishing out art in a microbiology laboratory.
