Art in Science
About Art in Science
Art in Science highlights cutting-edge research across disciplines—engineering, biological sciences, chemistry, art preservation and more—at the University of Delaware.
Through art, we aim to engage and educate the local community about the research taking place at the University of Delaware and its potential impact on local, national, and international communities. We hope to instill a sense of pride and connection between the University and local residents. We also include students from local schools to spark interest in STEM education, especially among underrepresented student populations.
Art in Science is sponsored by the National Science Foundation and UD’s College of Engineering, College of Arts and Sciences, and Department of Biomedical Engineering.
