Science Art Connection

 In Little Shop News

What is the Science Art Connection?

We were inspired by the Art of Science entries. The contest winners particularly demonstrated creativity in connecting art to science. We would like you to share a fun science concept or phenomenon using art. Each week on Monday we will post a science theme and some art examples. Your original art can be shared on social media (Instagram, Facebook, TikTok, Twitter). Choose your own art medium and tag us in your post and add the #LSOPScienceArt hashtag! Some examples include painting, poetry, and dancing. The Little Shop of Physics Science Art Connection team will pick their favorites each week, we will share our picks on Saturday. We encourage all ages of people from all over the world to participate.
