The City College of New York’s Cohen Library and the National Science Foundation sponsor a Biology Animation Assistantship program with an interdisciplinary team of students with science and art backgrounds. The goal is to use student-created works as teaching tools in and out of the classroom. The team is led by Professor Hysell Oviedo from the Biology department, and Professor Ching-Jung Chen from the Visual Resources Library.The student team includes: Rafay Malik (Electronic Design Multimedia), Katie Cheng (Studio Art major, Biology minor), Irving Estevez (Biology masters student), Timmy (Biology masters student)  Chen Gao (Mechanical Engineer). Students work collaboratively and teach each other about science concepts and computer programs needed to make the animations, such as Adobe Photoshop, AfterEffects, and Cinema4D.

These exhibitions are designed by the staff of the Digital Scholarship Services in the Cohen Library at the City College of New York. The Digital Scholarship Services in the Cohen Library work with faculty and staff manage or learn more about our services, please email digital@ccny.cuny.edu.
