Next Years Theme

COM's Third Gulf Coast Intercollegiate Consortium Creative and Academic Symposium 2015’s theme: "Being Human: the Art of Science; the Science of Art"
 
We want students to consider the interconnectedness between the arts and sciences. The relationship between the two is often unacknowledged, but we maintain that if students are persuaded to locate and analyze the inherent art in science and science in art, they'll achieve quality, creativity, and originality, with far greater regularity.  We want students to consider all of this while mapping these concepts to what makes us human. It's a high order but one we're sure students will conquer in surprising ways. Please contact us with questions or comments.
