How can we apply arts and sciences into our whole education system?
In "Fabian Oefner: Psychedelic Science," he describes the similarities between Science and Art. He explains that both are a response to our surroundings, Art having an emotional approach and science having a rational approach. Also in "Mae Jemison: Teach arts and sciences together," Jemison explains that "science provides the understanding of a universal experience, and art provides a universal understanding of a personal experience."
Why don't we apply more art and science into our K-12 education system?
Fabian Oefner uses art to not only create a wonderful image, but to also create a visual picture of the vibration of the wave in sound. Doing more on hand things would help understand the topic better and maybe even make it simpler. So what if we used the art form of music to help students understand math better. Would math be more interesting to those who don't like math? Any form of art helps you understand many things, such as history, literature and it also makes you aware of your surroundings. In science, you study whats around you and become more analytical. What if we used Fabians art to get a better understanding of how chemicals work and how they react with different experiments. Not only will we get a better understanding of things, but our creativity will also expand.
