"One of the more unfortunate things is the degree to which students think science is a pile of facts." The audience of high school biology teachers nod in agreement with Professor Robert Lue's testimony. "Science is a discovery," he states as he effortless describes the intersect of science and art. "The scientific process is often a box on a page. That's not how science unfolds ultimately. We fall into making science a lock step recipe. Science is about tackling a problem in a blue sky, dreamy way."
How do we as educators inform our students that science is intrinsically artistic? This year's Fall Lecture Series aims to establish science as an art form, introducing our LSO educators to various scientists, artists, and science-artists, who take on cutting-edge research with a unique lens.
