Drawing for the Sciences – Class in the Mobile Field Station

September 2015- The Drawing for the Sciences seminar was invited aboard the Mobile Field Station bus, stationed at Thornden Park for the afternoon. The class drew from live indigenous moss samples and after the exercises, they participated in an active brainstorming session about the goals for Mobile Field Station project and what components would be exciting additions for taking the curriculum on tour.
