The Community Engagement of Science Through Art (CESTA) program is a 1-month summer program that is run as a  collaboration between Jessica Hoover (WVU, Chemistry), Jason Lee (WVU College of Creative Arts, Sculpture) and Todd Hamrick (WVU Statler College, Engineering and Robotics). The program accepts six students ( 2 chemists, 2 engineers, 2 artists ) who work collaboratively for 1 month to design and construct an interactive science-art installation that will engage the local community in chemistry. Each student participates in all stages of the project development (brainstorming, designing, construction, installation, unveiling, etc). Each summer the program accepts applications from students with backgrounds in chemistry, engineering, and sculpture. Both undergraduate and graduate students are eligible to apply.
