I announced the “Mero Mutu Mero Kala” (My Heart, My Art) contest at the lecture this week. This is an opportunity for the students to conceptualize artistically what they are learning about the cardiovascular system. Last year we had 35 entries from the class of 60 students. They submitted amazing paintings, sketches, poetry and a spectacular music video that summarized one of our PBL Cases (www.youtube.com/watch?v=HlZ0aDS2TfE).
I’m excited to see what this year will bring in terms of artistic creativity. I have also asked the students to submit a logo for the contest and we will select the best one to adopt for this contest. I’ll keep you posted.
