Great Collaborations: Science + Art
Deep Sea Adventure!
During the 2013 spring semester, Politi Elementary students took on the theme of great collaborations between science and art. Students virtually joined William Beebe (scientist) and Else Bostelmann (artist) in 1930s Bermuda to explore deep sea habitat. We learned how the bathysphere worked to help humans explore habitat over 3000 feet below the ocean’s surface, and we studied the adaptations that deep sea animals have to survive in their environment (bioluminescence, reliance on their sense of touch, bodies able to withstand great pressure).
