On June 17, 2016 the WSU Arts Learning Collaborative arranged for Dr. Jeremy Goldbogen, Assistant Professor of Biology at Stanford University (our Arts Integration Conference keynote speaker), to present his work with whales and jellyfish to Weber State University’s PREP Year 1 students (a STEM summer academy).  The students then explored sculptures, scale, and other math concepts with Erinne Roundy and created miniature sculptures of large animals and objects.  Check out some of their examples below!
