P117: Connecting with the community through the chemistry in art - WITHDRAWN

Deberah Simon (Whitman College, USA)

Extending the idea of interdepartmental collaborations within an institution, we have extended our collaborations to include connections with the surrounding town. We are situated in a small town in Washington’s wine country that also has a thriving artist’s community, and we have begun several collaborations through the “Chemistry in Art” class with these artists.  In addition, we are part of a collaboration with the city and county governments and several artists to develop a glass recycling program that incorporates producing art with the glass, especially with discarded wine bottles. This presentation will focus on how this outside connection has presented a unique opportunity to enrich the class and engage the students in authentic learning.
