PBI- Project Based Instruction In Project-Based Instruction, students are given a project to complete, with varying amounts of flexibility and freedom to interpret the parameters of the project. Some projects are very strictly defined; some allow vast amounts of freedom in completion.
PhysBioArt: In this project, junior Physics students were partnered with sophomore Biology students and tasked to create one art piece together that illustrated a concept that connected the two subjects together. Students were given flexibility in the media they used to respond to the prompt.
Blood Components Mural: This collaborative mural illustrates the average proportions of erythrocytes (red blood cells), platelets, and neutrophils (white blood cells) in a drop of blood, scaled down.
Geometric Weavings: Students created geometric constructions inspired by Islamic traditional art and geometry; then they turned their construction drawings into small handwoven tapestries.
Wearable Technology: Physics students created wearable jewelry pieces that demonstrated electronics basics using LED's, conductive tape, and small batteries.
Medical Illustrations: In this short Accelerated Term* course, students studied the structure and function of an organ and created art pieces that illustrated one or both concepts.
*Accelerated Term is a short (~3 week) term in which students can select from a menu of course offerings designed by Bio-Med staff and guest faculty, including university professors and community members.
