New Student Exhibit – Explorations in Natural Science

Focused on student success and engagement…The college of Arts & Sciences Adjunct faculty, Hannah Ariel decided to engage Lynn University Scientific Literacy students in an art therapy exercise. The exercise was part of a larger class self-study assessing the effects of art therapy on biofeedback mechanisms and relaxation.

Students used pulse as a surrogate marker for relaxation response. Most students reported a clinically significant (greater than 5 beats per minute) reduction in pulse when engaged in the activity. They also subjectively reported feeling more relaxed.

 photo 2The exhibit represents the work of Lynn University Scientific Literacy students who engaged in explorations in Natural Science, as set forth by Carol Linnaeus.

Carol Linnaeus

Carol Linnaeus was born in Sweden, and is renowned for his development of the Linnaeus Classification System, also known as Binomial Nomenclature. In this taxonomy system, each species in nature may be classified according to two names: Genus and Species.

As a botanist, zoologist and physician, Linnaeus laid the foundations for the modern biological naming schemata. He is known as the father of modern taxonomy, and as one of the fathers of modern ecology.
