The eXpressions® program is a free, award-winning educational initiative that engages middle and high school students in the creative exploration of science and medicine. Through project-based, peer-to-peer learning, students translate research studies conducted by Cleveland Clinic summer interns, producing artistic, literary, and mathematical interpretations of the science.
In addition to promoting a deeper appreciation for science and its connections to other disciplines, eXpressions gives students the chance to win awards and exhibition and publication honors, and offers teachers the chance to earn graduate credit from the convenience of their classroom. And since the program connects to state and national academic content standards, it provides participants with the opportunity to cultivate 21st century skills in a fun, creative way.
