In Art Tech class, 6th graders have been drawing plant and animal cells and labelling photos of their drawings with the Sketchbook app on their iPads. This work combines scientific illustration with graphic design in a STREAM project which reinforces middle school science content. STREAM refers to an approach to teaching involving science, technology, religion, engineering, art, and math. This cell project directly addresses science, technology, and art. Our religious faith is part of all that we do at Saint Peter, so it is part of every project and class, even when a specific lesson does not directly include religion course content.
