The ART of Physics

The Art of Physics

Students in Mrs. Heather Wrights Physics class visited Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art to make scientific connections with the works of the collection.  Beginning with Leo Villareal's Buckyball Ms. Wright related the representation of the sculpture, a spherica fullerene molecule with the formula , to the immediate natural environment as well as each outdoor work of art installed on the Orchards Trail. 

Manager of School Programs, Zev Slurzberg, led students on a gallery experience and facilitated a conversation about movement and formulas from the physics class to selected works in the permanent collection.
