Today I was preparing all day for the special projects class I am teaching this quarter — NanoBioTech + Design and I figured out a way to deliver my lectures by addressing every topic with STEAM reconfigured — Science, Technology, Ecology, Arts + Mindfulness. Engineering and Mathematics are already in Science and Technology. They are replaces with Ecology and Mindfulness. First lecture is on the complexity of the PENCIL
Science – carbon / graphite / graphite
Technology – microscopy / industry
Ecology – impact on the environment
Arts – artist / designers / architects — examples
Mindfulness – exercise / assignment — draw and write with a pencil all that was addressed.
