Amy Salomone shares how she integrates art-based activities and units into her STEAM-based science courses and uses museum objects to enhance her students' engagement and understanding of essential concepts. Participants learn about and engage in activities which utilize the visual arts as a learning tool. She also discusses the value of working in an interdisciplinary way in different school contexts.
