The ArtScience Prize is a program that encourages students to explore art and design ideas at frontiers of science. Through the course of a year, students work in small groups to cultivate and transform ideas into project proposals, at the same time developing invaluable skills such as project development and planning, presentation skills, interdisciplinary thinking, and instilling confidence in themselves and their abilities. The 2013-14 ArtScience Prize theme, Energy of the Future, is designed to challenge students to bring their best thinking toward envisioning and defining that future, and finding solutions for making the future as bright as possible.
