The CESTA program (Community Engagement in Scienc Through Art) is a new science-art summer program beginning in the summer of 2016 at West Virginia University.
The objective of the CESTA summer program is to train and encourage students from all disciplines to educate and engage the community to discuss science as it pertains to our daily lives and decisions, and to introduce the beauty of science through art and understanding.
The 2016 summer program will run from May 31st to June 25th. During the four week program, six students from different disciplines (chemistry, engineering and sculpture) and at different stages of their education will work collaboratively to design and construct an interactive science-art display in Morgantown, WV. Each student will participate in all stages of the project development (brainstorming, designing, construction, installation, unveiling, etc) and will receive a stipend of $1,950 for the month.
Applications are now being accepted from students in chemistry, enginering, and sculpture.
