Artronics is a unique program for students in grades 9-12 that integrates content areas in science and technology with art and career exploration; STEM+Art. Students work with visiting experts in the computer science field and with local visiting artists to explore the intersection of art and technology. Side x Side combines computer programming and design with art making to provide a challenging, meaningful curriculum that is relevant, critical, and engaging for today’s high school students.
“Casco Bay High School is thrilled to be able to partner with SidexSide and USM on this innovative new course. It will provide a rich and distinct opportunity for our students to think and act as both scientists and artists while working alongside talented local experts.” – Derek Pierce, Casco Bay High School principal
