Our lab has been interested in modeling molecules and atoms with sculptures based on "tensegrity" (cf. Kenneth Snelson). We also have an interest in using various artistic methods to visualize, describe or interpret scientific concepts and structures. We have a Z-Morph 3D printer in lab with most accessories that can be used for prototyping or project work. Student could bring their own project, or take up one related to the lab: 1) nuclear, atomic and molecular models, 2) representations of '4D' in '3D', or 3) other projects at the science and art interface.

I'm interested in this project. What should I do next?
Now that UR-Linked has helped you to identify a faculty project that interests you and for which you might be
qualified, be sure to review
the essential steps in contacting a potential faculty mentor
The Director of Undergraduate Research,
Dr. Jane Greer.
, can provide you with further guidance about finding
and connecting with faculty mentors at UMKC.
Once you have reviewed the essential steps to prepare for connecting
with a potential faculty mentor, you can use the "Contact Details" for this project to connect with the faculty
member and to begin a conversation about how you might get involved.
