Mon, Oct. 25, 2pm CT
Have you ever wondered what it is like to grow up in a family of artists and then end up a scientist? What does thinking like an artist offer the scientist? Can the blending of art and science encourage a more diverse population of students to pursue science, and improve the public understanding of science? In this webinar you will learn, the benefit of the arts in science, particularly in the science classroom and its advantages with increasing public engagement. Ahna Skop, Professor in the Department of Genetics and an affiliate faculty member in Life Sciences Communication and the UW-Madison Arts Institute at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, will give you an exciting glimpse into her life and how she has impacted science, education and the public with her two passions: science and art.
