Playing is as important for adults as it is for children; it has a foundation role in all scientific achievement. Today’s post is one you should come back to again and again. It demonstrates the essential connectivity between art and science, the art/science, and how the playful spirit leads to great discoveries.

***Transforming Education Series: Integrating the Arts into Education***

Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well

          One of the most successful education programs supported by the US federal government is not in the Department of Education but in the National Endowment for the Arts and its partner institutions in both public and private sectors. It is the Turnaround Arts program located across the country in many different states. I have posted stories from individual schools in the program on this site; today I want you to explore the entire program as it has developed over the years.
