Art & Science by Avery L.

Over the past few years, the education system for grade school and upward has taken a very specialized approach, rather then that of offering a well-rounded curriculum. As society becomes more specialized, so does the need for creative enforcement in education. In a 2017 Journal of Physics publication on the arts in science education, Dr. Izadi mentions “Those who are actively engaged in arts should be able to better manage their scientific projects and be able to better communicate and think.” It also provides more options to help facilitate a richer learning environment as curricula is developed for STEM students(Braund and Rice, 2019). Additionally, as the education expectations for places grow steeper, it is important to combine this education with novel research experience which will apply to their field of interest. It greatly increases interest in pursuing a higher level of education, and offers an opportunity to be given hands-on experience in a scientific laboratory(Russel et al, 2009).
