Laiwan is developing a public art project, working in collaboration with the Department of Earth, Ocean & Atmospheric Sciences (EOAS) directed studies students at the University of British Columbia led by Dr. Tara Ivanochko, Director of Environmental Science. Laiwan will be researching interdisciplinary approaches and opportunities to bridge the arts and sciences with the EOAS starting September 2017 until May 2018. More information to come soon.
As one of the largest and most diverse Earth science departments in the world, UBC’s Department of Earth, Ocean & Atmospheric Sciences (EOAS) is an international leader in both research and teaching innovation. EOAS researchers together with undergraduate and graduate students investigate processes happening at Earth’s surface, within its interior, atmosphere, and ocean, as well as processes happening on other terrestrial planets. EOAS instructors utilize cutting-edge, evidence-based pedagogy in the classroom, spearheading the University-wide initiative to improve undergraduate science education. The department’s main outreach hub, the Pacific Museum of Earth, showcases EOAS’s commitment to engage and educate the public on a myriad of Earth science phenomena.
