Since 1998, students at SEED schools have been invited to express their artistic and creative talents in themes of science, nature, and diversity. Every year we receive amazing works of art that tell us how SEED students see the world.
This year's theme was "The Earth: Above and Below". There is more to our planet than what we see on its surface. What beauty, what creatures, and what mysteries can be found in the depths of our oceans or the crevices beneath our feet? How does subsurface Earth compare with what you see above ground?
Take a look at the pile of prescription medications below. This is the accumulation of one family's (my family's) medications over five years. Every single one is expired, yet they were still in my medicine cabinet.
Have you ever heard of an ice circle? Neither have I. Until today. I saw this amazing video of an ice circle, which is described by Becky Oskin of LiveScience as "a spinning ice disk" in the middle of a body of water. And that is exactly what it appears to be. Watch this video:
A few weeks ago I visited our city's new central library. It is a building that has been in the making for more than 20 years. It was worth the wait. The structure is magnificent and it is an ideal setting for people of all ages to enjoy the spice that books add to our lives.
SEED point, I thought it's just an abstract thing for SEED as earned through joining SEED activities and others online. But, just today, SEEDs became reality as we receive Viscosity SEEDkit, artwork package, amazing science and puzzle books - ALL SENT THROUGH DHL.
Thank you so much SEED for all the opportunities and blessings shared to Quirino High School family, Quezon City, Philippines.
God bless us all!
My parents have always had a fondness for night blooming Cereus plants. I remember them from when I was a little girl. They're a cactus, but not your typical "Arizona desert" cactus. They don't have spines, to begin with. They have long gangly arms and grow and flare wildly from the base. We must have had 3 or 4 plants scattered throughout our garden while I was growing up.
The oilfield may seem an unlikely place to find art, but we think it's there. Show us with pictures, drawings, or videos what art and beauty you have found in the oil and gas industry.
Not everyone had the chance to participate in this year's artwork program. Now's your chance to show the SEED community what "The Earth: Above and Below" means to you - with a picture, drawing, painting, or something else.
