The productive tensions between the sciences and the arts, between disciplines that make predictions and those that permit speculation, establish a creative dialectic. This paper describes a methodological approach for examining these kinds of creative dialectics and puts forth ways in which they might be implemented as educational models for cultivating innovation. The goal is to present a framework that builds on interdisciplinary pedagogy and hybrid experimentation—a technical and artistic rigor for approaching engineering and design as a mode of inquiry for innovation.
