The Art of Science

Last year, Falmouth High School art teacher Corine Adams (right) assigned junior Sarah Monteiro and her fellow students to make marine animal-inspired ceramics, which this spring were displayed at WHOI. The project, supported by a grant from the Cape Cod-based Falmouth Education Foundation, included a field trip to WHOI with slideshow presentations and descriptions by scientists of the fish, plankton, and and coral that they study. "So many people don't appreciate how much of science has a connection to art," said WHOI biologist Heidi Sosik. "Using art to reach young people with science seems like a great way to avoid preconceptions about science being complicated or boring."
