We are often told that we are either artistic or scientific, and that these are opposing abilities- but that is far from the case. For as long as people have been doing science, art has been a part of it- from drawing specimens under the microscope to using analogies to understand atoms. And science is intensely creative, needing the ability to dream up ideas about the world to solve unanswered science questions!

In this session, we introduce students to some of the ways in which art has inspired science, and science has inspired art. We investigate what is going on inside the creative brain, and how to spark creativity, nurturing your own creative thinking with practice, just like any other skill. Then we get hands-on, and students create their own piece of string-art inspired by the brain’s amazing ability to change, based on your experiences.
