Art of Science Learning


Art of Science Learning Incubators for Innovation empower community-driven collaboration by bringing people together from multiple sectors, diverse in expertise, life experience, and age. For one year, Innovation Fellows participate in workshops that integrate the arts—to practice the skills and processes of innovation and apply those skills to a STEM-related challenge.

Music, movement, theater, and the visual arts activate the imagination and facilitate productive play as we identify and analyze opportunities for innovation, generate and enrich ideas for solutions, develop and test project ideas, and plan for bringing projects to market.

Each Incubator for Innovation has selected its own STEM-related challenge:
San Diego — Water
Chicago — Urban Nutrition
Worcester, MA — Transportation

UCSD Professor David Kirsh, Arthur C. Clarke Center for Human Imagination co-director, is observing the Incubator for Innovation workshops and probing the nature of collaborative creativity in this unique setting.
