ART MEETS SCIENCE IN NEW YORK STUDY TRIP

 

Sixty students from the University of Lincoln will jet off to New York on Monday (7th November) for a unique cross-faculty trip combining design with science.

 

The five-day educational visit to the Big Apple involves separate schedules for the Product Design and Forensic Science students but they will all be staying together at the Jazz on the Park Hostel near Central Park.

 

The Forensic Science students will visit the Forensic Investigation Center with Dr Barry Duceman, Director of Biological Sciences at the NYPD, and the Security Management Institute at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice.

 

They will also visit the American Museum of Natural History to meet Dr Angela Klaus, Director of the Microscopy and Imaging Facility.

 

Meanwhile the Product Design students will be going visiting New York agencies Frog Design and Ecco Design, Moss (‘the world’s best design store’) and the offices of Metropolis Magazine.

 

They will also be visiting exhibitions at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA), the Guggenheim Museum and the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

 

“This cross-faculty educational excursion is a first for us but it’s a good way of minimising costs while still giving our students the best opportunities to expand their knowledge and their horizons,” said university spokesman Jez Ashberry.

 

The students will arrive in New York on Monday morning and will return to the UK the following Sunday.
