Students Awarded for Expressing the Art of Science
Kudos to Nicole Eng, Michael Price, and Arianna Saenz, recipients of the Joe Russo Art of Science Scholarship for 2022! The scholarship, established to honor Mr. Joe Russo, a graduate of CSULB's MS in Math Education program, identifies students enrolled in SCED100 during the Fall semester, who excel in one of the course assignments that challenges students to creatively examine spatial reasoning using real-world art.
SCED 100 (Introduction to Scientific and Spatial Reasoning) is a foundational GE course designed to provide experiences that help students 'think outside of the box' and recognize the role of spatial reasoning, perception, and creativity in the practices of science. The course, however, is not limited to science majors. This year’s recipients have declared majors in Marine Biology, Pre-nursing, and Marketing. Special thanks to Science Education lecturers Alberto Lazaro, Paul Burns, and David Harris for helping with the selection process.
