The 2017 eXpressions™
Art, Language, and Math eXhibit opened on February 9, 2017, with a program and reception for participating students, their parents, teachers, and program judges. The eXhibit is on display to the general public through March 17, 2017, at the Global Center for Health Innovation
Launched in 2005, eXpressions™
is an award-winning educational initiative that utilizes creative expression to engage high school students in the exploration of science and medicine. Through project-based, peer-to-peer learning, students translate research studies conducted by Cleveland Clinic high school interns, producing artistic, literary, and mathematical interpretations of the science.
In addition to providing participants with a deeper appreciation for science and its connections to other disciplines, eXpressions™
gives students and their teachers the chance to earn awards, and exhibition and publication opportunities. And since the program connects to Common Core State Standards, it provides a fun, creative way to cultivate 21st
This year, students from 51 schools submitted 1,545 creative interpretations for judging. Of those submissions there were 61 Art, 29 Language and 5 Math pieces identified for special recognition by a panel of Cleveland Clinic and community content experts. In addition to being included in the eXhibit, award-winning eXpressions™
submissions are featured in an annual publication and on the web.
