Art and Science meet at the Gallery

Princeton University is sponsoring its first Art of Science competition. They have asked scientists in the large Princeton University science community to submit images that were created in process of scientific inquiry. One of my favorite examples is a composite picture of 150 people's faces created as part of a Computer Science study.

Here at the museum we often try to think of unique ways to combine art and science. Try this fun activity making paints out of acid base indicators or this activity making bubble art (our results).
