BMB End of Year Party blends Science and Art to find perfect balance

BMB Party 1

- It can sometimes be hard to put science and art in the same sentence.  When most people think of science they often gravitate to straight lines, black & white, plain lab spaces, lab manuals and straight-laced research personnel.  This year the BMB Department set to put these misconceptions to rest as it held its annual end of the year party with an art show theme.


BMB Party 2Held on December 11th at the Nittany Lion Inn, the event served as a way for the BMB community to get together one last time for fellowship and fun before everyone heads in different directions for the upcoming break.  The "BMB Creates Art Show" was well attended and a huge success with more than 20 exhibits entered.  Votes were cast by those who attended and purchased tickets and 8 awards were handed out.

The proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to a local charity.  This year the BMB community raised $300.00 to help support the Centre County Trout Unlimited Chapter.  These funds will benefit the Chapter's "Trout in the Classroom" project allowing local students to engage with a cold water aquarium in the classroom and the Spring Creek Watershed on field trips.
