Recording: Science in Culture: Literature, Hip Hop, & Dance, Mar 7, 2023

Science is often seen as elitist - something done by a privileged few. But science is part of culture. It’s a process of asking questions & a mechanism for decision making. And it shares much with other aspects of culture, like music, dance & literature. Like science, they all involve a process of discovery. So how do we make these connections apparent in meaningful ways? We'll discuss three innovative approaches to developing artful, engaging experiences that authentically incorporate science.
