Combining Engineering and Art in a Real World Way
In today’s complex global economy and marketplace, knowledge workers must possesses multi-disciplinary skills to remain competitive. That’s why Greenbrier East High School chemistry educator Angela Leef, and art educator Vicky Neal co-teach Globaloria—a program that uniquely helps them mutually reinforce each others’ subject areas through game design. Students learn science concepts by creating interactive visualizations and models, which emulates the multi-disciplinary nature of the 21st century job setting.
