My STEAM project focuses on a rare connective tissue disorder called Epidermolysis bullosa (EB). Many people refer to this rare disease as “butterfly syndrome” due to the nature of the disorder, which makes the skin extremely fragile and delicate, like a butterfly’s wings. The objective covered in this project is describing in depth different types of epithelial and connective tissue, including their functions and locations. 

This is the media portion of my STEAM project- I did a painting that resembles how skin can look with Epidermolysis bullosa, and I incorporated the nickname for the disorder by including a butterfly.
