My Students

"Study the science of art. Study the art of science," Leonardo Da Vinci. Empowering students through art to learn biology and anatomy is the goal of our new Biological Arts Design Engineering (BADE) course.

Our Biology Engineering Arts Science Technology (BEAST) is a STEAM program in which students study art, biology, and physics through the lens of the film and theme park industries to innovate and create animatronics, machines that move like living creatures.

Our student body ranges across many socioeconomic levels and cultural backgrounds (with many Title I and minority students). Their backgrounds vary widely from "high achieving" students who plan to move on to four-year colleges and universities (including Ivy league schools, film schools, and art schools) to other students who struggle with grades​ and work after school to help support their families. All our kids want to believe that they can have a future in the Arts and Sciences!

My Project

With these items (a KitchenAid mixer, alcohol activated airbrush paints and more), my students will be able to make replicas of extinct insects and other creepy crawlies come to life!

Using techniques of mold making and casting, students will use the KitchenAid mixer to mix foam latex, which can be poured into molds to create the bodies of our dino-bugs, and using the alcohol paints, students will airbrush the their creations to give them a great final look.

Touch-ups can be made using the skin illustrator palettes, and with aprons to keep them clean, my students will be both excited to work and ready to go to their next class afterwards.
