  11. Art + technology in optics educational outreach programs

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Silberman, Donn M.

    2007-09-01

    In the modern era, art and technology have been at opposite ends of the spectrum of human study. Artists tend to be non-technical and technologists tend not to be artistic. While this is a broad generalization, it is rare to find an artist teaching science or an engineer teaching art. However, if we think back several centuries, it was very common for great artists to be at the forefront of technology. The prime example being the great Leonardo Di Vinci. Over the past several years, the optics educational outreach programs of the Optics Institute of Southern California (OISC) have incorporated using art and artists to help teach optics and related science. The original use of this was with material from the General Atomics Education Foundation, Color My World, which has been used in a number of settings. Recently, the OISC has partnered with the UC Irvine Beall Center for Art + Technology to provide Family Day Event presentations that use the themes of current Art + Technology exhibits to help attendees learn and understand more about the fundamental science through the art. The two main concepts here are that artists are using science and technology as the basis for their art, also sometimes making some social statements; and the technologists are using the art to make the science more accessible and interesting to the general pubic. This paper weaves a path from the original OISC uses of art to the recent work at UC Irvine.

    2015-04-01

    The "Terra e Arte" project was designed to combine science and art by approaching soil contents in basic education schools in Viçosa, Minas Gerais, Brazil. The project was developed to awake, sensitize and create awareness about soils and their importance to life and environment within school communities. It was proposed and realized by the Earth Sciences Museum Alexis Dorofeef (MCTAD) of the Federal University of Viçosa (UFV), as part of the celebrations of its 20th anniversary. Since all the schools of the town visit the museum at least once a year and most of them have received and carried out pedagogic projects on soil themes in the last 20 years, it was proposed to them to develop a soil subject with any of their groups and combine it with painting using soil materials. Each group interested in joining the project received a basic set of material to produce soil paints. They were expected to develop a soil theme and its contents for a few weeks and to finalize it with a figurative and textual collective creation that synthetized their learning. 16 of the 24 visited schools joined the project and realized it for an average of two months. During this time, the school groups visited the museum and/or borrowed the itinerant exposition on soils from the museum to work with in in the school community. At the end of the projects, the productions were presented at the Knowledge Market (Feira do Conhecimento) that happens every year in the central square of the town, as part of the National Week of Science and Technology. At the event, 58 works were presented by 14 schools, involving directly 700 pupils and their teachers. They approached themes from soil formation and properties to agroecology and urban occupation and impacts on the soils. 30 of the works were selected for a commemorative exposition and 12 were chosen for a table calendar 2014. The movement created around the project mobilized many people and had strong impact on the school communities, especially

  17. Art, anatomy, and medicine: Is there a place for art in medical education?

    PubMed

    Bell, Lawrence T O; Evans, Darrell J R

    2014-01-01

    For many years art, anatomy and medicine have shared a close relationship, as demonstrated by Leonardo da Vinci's anatomical drawings and Andreas Vesalius' groundbreaking illustrated anatomical textbook from the 16th century. However, in the modern day, can art truly play an important role in medical education? Studies have suggested that art can be utilized to teach observational skills in medical students, a skill that is integral to patient examination but seldom taught directly within medical curricula. This article is a subjective survey that evaluates a student selected component (SSC) that explored the uses of art in medicine and investigates student perception on the relationship between the two. It also investigates whether these medical students believe that art can play a role in medical education, and more specifically whether analyzing art can play a role in developing observational skills in clinicians. An "Art in Medicine" 8-week course was delivered to first year medical students at Brighton and Sussex Medical School. The use of art to improve observational skills was a core theme throughout. Feedback from the students suggests that they believe a strong association between art and medicine exists. It also showed a strong perception that art could play a role in medical education, and more specifically through analyzing art to positively develop clinical observational skills. The results of this subjective study, together with those from research from elsewhere, suggest that an art-based approach to teaching observational skills may be worth serious consideration for inclusion in medical and other healthcare curricula.

    Popular wisdom has it that collaboration is "the new black" in the arts and arts education.

  8. Astronomy, Visual Literacy, and Liberal Arts Education

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Crider, Anthony

    2016-01-01

    With the exponentially growing amount of visual content that twenty-first century students will face throughout their lives, teaching them to respond to it with visual and information literacy skills should be a clear priority for liberal arts education. While visual literacy is more commonly covered within humanities curricula, I will argue that because astronomy is inherently a visual science, it is a fertile academic discipline for the teaching and learning of visual literacy. Astronomers, like many scientists, rely on three basic types of visuals to convey information: images, qualitative diagrams, and quantitative plots. In this talk, I will highlight classroom methods that can be used to teach students to "read" and "write" these three separate visuals. Examples of "reading" exercises include questioning the authorship and veracity of images, confronting the distorted scales of many diagrams published in astronomy textbooks, and extracting quantitative information from published plots. Examples of "writing" exercises include capturing astronomical images with smartphones, re-sketching textbook diagrams on whiteboards, and plotting data with Google Motion Charts or iPython notebooks. Students can be further pushed to synthesize these skills with end-of-semester slide presentations that incorporate relevant images, diagrams, and plots rather than relying solely on bulleted lists.

  8. Educating the public, defending the art: language use and medical education in Hippocrates' The Art.

    PubMed

    Rademaker, Adriaan

    2010-01-01

    The Hippocratic treatise The Art is an epideictic speech in defence of medicine against certain unnamed detractors. The author of The Art is fully aware of the fact that for him, language (as opposed to, say, a live demonstration) is the medium of education. Accordingly, the author shows full command of the main issues of the late fifth century 'sophistic' debate on the nature and the correct and effective use of language. In his views on language, the author seems to adopt a quite positivistic stance. For him, words reflect our perception and interpretation of the visual appearances or eidea of the things that are, and these appearances prove the existence of things in nature. To this extent, language reflects reality, provided that we language users have the expertise to form correct interpretations of what we observe. At the same time, language remains a secondary phenomenon: it is not a 'growth' of nature, but a set of conventional signs that have a basis in reality only if they are applied correctly. There is always the possibility of incorrect interpretation of our perceptions, which will lead to an incorrect use of language that does not reflect real phenomena. Words remain conventional expressions, and not all words can be expected to reflect the truth. In fact, the unnamed detractors of the art are victim to many such incorrect interpretations. Consistent with his view of language as secondary to visual phenomena, the author claims in his peroration that as a medium for the defence of medicine, the spoken word is generally considered less effective than live demonstrations. This modesty, while undoubtedly effective as a means to catch the sympathy of his public, still seems slightly overstated. Our author is fully aware of the powers and limitations of his medium, and shows great sophistication in its use. PMID:21560572

  15. ArtArctic Science: a polarTREC effort to educate about Antarctica through art

    NASA Astrophysics Data System (ADS)

    Botella, J.; Racette, B.

    2013-12-01

    Formal scientific education is as important as ever for raising awarness about Antarctic issues, but some people resistance to learning about scienctific issues demands novel approaches for reaching people who are not in the classroom. ArtArctic Science is an interactive exhibit of photography and paintings presented at the Overture Center for the Arts, in Madison, WI by Monona Grove High School students and a science teacher that attempts to educate the general audience about Antarctic science. The exhibit explores art as a form of perceiving and understanding the world around us, and as a way of igniting the spark of curiosity that can lead to scientific inquiries. Antarctica has inspired explorers and scientists for over 100 years, and we add our work to efforts that share scientific results with common people. Antarctica offers stunning views of amazing geometric ice structures complemented and contrasted by the organisms that inhabit it that fascinate most everyone. We probe these scenes through photography and paintings knowing that there is more in each image than what the eye can 'see'. We invite the viewer to discover these secrets by engaging the observer in a mimicking of the scientific method (observation, questioning, finding an explanation, revising the explanation). Each art piece has a question and a scientific explanation hidden under a wooden lid. The observer is invited to explore the scene, involve itself with the scientific query, come up with an answer, and compare his or her idea with the hidden explanation. The exhibit is inspired by an Antarctic PolarTREC expedition in which our science teacher participated as a member of a scientific research team. In this presentation we share the knowledge acquired through this experience in hopes that it will help others attempting a similar Project.

    2002-12-01

    The State of the Art Telescope Educational Collaboration (STARTEC) was founded in February 2001 at a meeting in Cape Town, South Africa. The meeting was attended by educational representatives of some of the largest and most advanced astronomical facilities in the world. The attending representatives agreed that astronomy, a basic science with roots in every human culture, possesses an exceptional potential to attract public interest and elevate science literacy around the world. In addition, they agreed that large, state-of-the-art astronomical facilities, as public icons of science and technology, have a responsibility to assume a leading role in astronomy education and public outreach. Accordingly, STARTEC was formed to establish a forum for exchanging resources and expertise in education and public outreach. Goals of the collaboration include: inspiring the general public to appreciate and support astronomy; inspiring and preparing future generations of scientists, engineers and technicians; using the collective visibility of STARTEC institutions to improve science literacy through the news media and to improve public awareness of the threats of light pollution, radio interference and space debris to the world's astronomical environment; leveraging resources and fostering collaborations among STARTEC members for educational programs; and improving members' education and public outreach efforts as well as encouraging other institutions and other scientific disciplines to collaborate on educational and outreach programs. The current members of STARTEC are: Arecibo Observatory, the European Southern Observatory, Gemini Observatory, the Hubble Space Telescope, the Instituto de Astrofisica de Canarias and Gran Telescopio Canarias, Jodrell Bank Observatory/PPARC, McDonald Observatory and the Hobby-Eberly Telescope, the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, and the South African Astronomical Observatory/Southern Africa Large Telescope.
