Miami art teacher melds science with art to teach students about the world (Verizon)

Students approach the design cycle like the STEM process through a unique blend of art, science and technology.
Art teacher Lourdes Fuller firmly believes art class is a lab. The design cycle, she argues, is very much like the STEM process: You get an idea, draft it out and then step back and redesign. Fuller explains, “The scientific process is that you basically test your hypothesis. In art, you're testing your idea.”
Fuller argues that art and science have much in common: “In order to be any kind of scientist, you have to have a curiosity, and you have to observe the world, and all of that is art.”
