Online Course: Art and Science Minicourses
These minicourses focus on the connections between art and science. Participants explore topics through inquiry-based learning in an online community while gaining valuable classroom connections. Minicourses include Art and the Science of Looking, Art and Systems, Art and Physics, Art and Ecology, and Art and Nature. Each course is self-paced and should take around three hours to complete. All courses are available January 10 through March 7.
Courses are aligned with the K–8 North Carolina Standard Course of Study for Visual Art and Science. They are open to educators of all disciplines and audiences. Each course can provide a certificate of participation for three hours, and up to 15 hours if all five courses are completed (0.3–1.5 CEU, with approval from your local school system).
