Immerse your neighborhood in STEM and art in a study with Virginia Tech and the National Science Foundation! Artist Jane Gabrielle is part of the team studying heat levels in our neighborhoods in 2024. This two-hour sidewalk chalk art activity engages all ages using storytelling and neighborhood pride. The work will be in full sun, partial shade and total shade. Science students will measure heat levels during the workshop to get a better picture of heat resiliency in our city. The artwork (with artist permission) can be uploaded to an online digital hub documenting the project.
