For several years, artistic collaborations have been underway among faculty and students in the Schools of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences (HAAS), Engineering, and Architecture to innovate new frontiers in the interaction of art and science. Explained Professor Kathy High, "We are continually looking for new ways to encourage students to be creative problem solvers. Towards that goal, we began several years ago to look for ways to relate humanities courses with science and engineering fields. I have been trying since my arrival at RPI to make an interdisciplinary area for students to work between art and science, specifically biology.
