The Colors of Nature project blends art and science through programs for students, families, and educators. Through our science cafés, we invite youth and adults to talk with scientists who use creativity in their work. Our summer academies offer intensive 2-week experiences for artistic middle school girls to explore science and art together. Our educator kits and professional development workshops provide materials and support for teachers, museum educators, and others who work in informal learning environments to explore these topics with the youth they teach.
