December 11th through December 17th — The STEAM Faculty Learning Community Invites you to the STEAM Exhibition. CG 218 at Annandale.
CETL and the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) faculty learning community would like to invite you to an exhibition where art and science intersect. Offered as a Supervised Study 299: The Creative Mind! This course is managed by a Faculty Learning Community at the Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning who are interested in exploring the connections between STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) and the Arts (Drawing, Painting, Music, Dance, Photography, Film, Theater, etc.), and who want to see the STEAM concept grow at NOVA. Six talented honors students have been working. Each student works with a pair of faculty mentors, one from an art/humanities discipline and one from a science discipline. The culmination of their collaboration will be on exhibit in CG 218 on the Annandale campus from approximately 10am-4pm daily from Dec. 12-17. Dec. 11 from 4:00-7:00pm will hold the evening session where the students and mentors will be available to explain their illuminating and interesting collaborative projects.
You’ll see exhibitions of art that invites you into the world of anatomy and physiology, of music that interprets different functioning of male and female brains, a ceramic rendition of embryonic development and other projects. The students have demonstrated amazing creativity. Be sure to see it!.
The NOVA New Faculty Class of 2013-14 Kicked-off their Faculty First Year Experience on August 13th with a day-long event. They have completed the first of their 4th Friday meetings. They have seen Loudoun, been welcomed by Drs. Templin and Leidig, and learned about our students from a terrific Interactive Quiz presented by Dr. Saperstone.
