Linking Science and Art: MECA
Linking Science and Art: MECA

MECA's Public Engagement program connects art students with community partners to propel students into real-world situations that tap their creative potential. In the fall of 2018, BRI teamed up with the students in Andrea Southworth and Deb Debiegun's science course Invasive Species. The students worked at BRI's River Point Bird Observatory to study how invasive species might affect the native populations of birds and plants.

MECA students present their artwork to BRI staff. The project resulted in a poster display to be installed at BRI's Bird Observatory at River Point Conservation Area in Falmouth. The art will help engage and educate visitors about the work BRI scientists conduct at River Point and about the interconnectedness of our ecosystems.
