When the project started, we got to hear from several speakers about their careers and how it includes art to inspire us as we were looking at topics. The project asks us students to choose any science or math concept and represent it in an art style.
I chose the concepts of crystal systems which uses polyhedrons to show the shape of the crystal molecules. Polyhedrons are geometric 3D shapes and I created the shapes with pipe cleaners then used the borax crystal experiment which makes crystals form on the pipe cleaners. Alongside it, I did a painting which I overlapped the nets of the shapes in order to hide them in the painting.
There were also many other projects, ones which personified planets or hazard symbols. People created drama performances or dances as well. It's a good way to let students choose a science or math topic that they are interested in and expand their knowledge. Some students explored supernatural topics like ghosts and six senses. In the end, it lets students go with their strengths and interests to create cool projects. All grades came by to look at our projects and got to learn something new.
