Inspiration and Discovery is the theme of the Second Annual Middle School Science Symposium on Tuesday, March 30. Keynote Speaker, artist John Pugh, will open the day by challenging the students to think anew about how science can be a part of their career. He’ll be discussing how biology, architecture and mathematics all play a part in the creation of his trompe l’oeil murals.
John Pugh is a trompe l’oeil artist focusing primarily on mural painting. His ‘trick of the eye’ paintings produce the optical illusion that a three-dimensional space or object hovers within a two-dimensional frame. His work can be seen throughout the Bay Area and the world.
Alumna Angelee Kumar '00, a presenter at the Symposium, will show students bioengineering applications including 3-D tissue culture, cell culture techniques, and in vitro diagnostic technologies.
All Saint Andrew’s alumni, alumni parents and their families are invited to join us for the welcome remarks and keynote address from 8:30 – 9:30 am in Saint Andrew’s Hall on campus. Coffee will be served.
