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

Our students need a few last things to make their extinct animals come to life, and with these power supply units and wheels brackets our kids will make their dinobugs creations go vroom!

While we have wheels and motors, without power suppliers our bugs will remain lifeless, but with these units, our trilobites will be back from the fossil record and ready to party!

The power suppliers are needed so we have our own dedicated set, and can stop begging to borrow some from the Science Department. And without wheel brackets, our bugs will be unable to move! But together they will be ready to go go go!
