Two of Dr. Milne’s Advanced Placement Chemistry classes presented their work at the ARC (Art Reacts with Chemistry) showcase on the evening of May 25.
ARC emphasized the interdisciplinary nature of science and art as students apply chemistry knowledge to create works of art. Novelty and creativity in the classroom captured the students’ attention and enhanced their cognitive capacities.
Many projects that applied chemistry to the creative process were on display in our Library. The AP students enjoyed this opportunity to share their knowledge and creations with their families and teachers on this night of celebration.
The event provided students a valuable opportunity to explore the many ways chemistry affects our daily lives. We recognize that global problems require that our students become effective and creative problem-solvers, who can be flexible, persevere, take risks, and who are optimistic and confident.
