The Arts and Sciences have traditionally been on opposite sides of the educational spectrum. We have designed an exercise which combines the Biological Sciences and the Arts into BioArt, using biological media to create unique works of art. This approach targets our arts students and benefits both groups of students on our campus by blending the Arts and STEM to create a STEAM initiative on our campus.
