Thursday and Friday, May 1 and 2, 2014
Arts|Learning and Lesley University present a conference on the role that the arts can play in support of learning in the STEM subject areas. The conference is Friday, May 2, 2014.
There is a pre-conference opportunity Thursday afternoon of May 1, 2014 to visit VSA Massachusetts' flagship partner school, The Henderson Inclusion School or the Boston Arts Academy, a national leader in the STEAM movement to put the "A" in STEM. Some will remember the site visits to the Henderson School that figured so prominently in the VSA International Education Conference: The Contours of Inclusive Arts Teaching & Learning in 2011. If you missed that conference here's another chance.
One of VSA Massachusetts' COOL Schools teaching artists, Wilhelmina Peragine, is a panelist. She will discuss how arts integration supports science learning at both the High School and Elementary School levels.
Other Featured Guests Include:
- David Edwards and Carrie Fitzsimmons of Cloud Place, ArtScience Prize
- Steve Seidel, Harvard University
- Joyce Kressler and Joe Cox, Art of Science Learning—Worcester Incubator
