Bolster students' confidence in science through two art-based biology projects described in this article.These successful projects were used in a 10th-grade biology class and focus on immunology and human evolution. Immunology, a complex and often inaccessible topic, lends itself to a guided inquiry lesson in which students receive specific direction regarding the nature and content of their projects. Students completing artwork related to human evolution explored the subject via an open inquiry format.

Students were assessed in their understanding of human evolution and cells in immune system in an alternative art high school through their projects that showed their understanding through some form of art work. There are rubrics provided in the article for each of the topics. This article addresses the different ways students can learn a topic – multiple intelligences. It is just another way to assess student’s understandings.
