On the blog, we're sharing updates from each school division from yesterday's Love Your Body Day on Valentine's Day!
Big congratulations to Emma Borrow '18, who was awarded a Red Ribbon for her work "Inhale and Exhale," and to Alex Deutchman '19, who received an Honorable Mention for "Tangled Pressure," in the 2017 Cleveland Clinic eXpressions program. This annual event calls upon area students to translate research studies in order to produce artistic, literary, and mathematical interpretations of science.
From Upper School visual arts teacher Shelly Ahern: "Every year, I observe my students blaze trails their way through the research and objectives provided by science students from Cleveland Clinic eXpressions. There is a sort of shift that happens when students represent actual research, the 'what if' thinking becomes intuitive, the end result is palpable."
