Poetry, dancing and sculpture connect art with math and science at Stanford [VIDEO]
Once emphatically separated from each other, STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) and art are connecting in exciting and enlightening ways. Stanford University, known for its strong science and engineering programs, is part of this trend. An increasing number of classes and exhibits at Stanford fuse the two fields, and students and faculty are developing new ways to showcase their artistically scientific works.
Now wrapping up its third year, the Senior Reflection in Biology course invites students to combine their artistic talents with their scientific interests. In this year-long class, students gain insight from mentors and workshop groups and create capstone projects. Final products range from paintings and sculptures to films and spoken poetry.
