Many local STEAM events are cancelled or postponed indefinitely due to COVID-19, but the STEAM Alliance calendar may not reflect the most current changes. Please confirm details with the organizer of any specific event that interests you.
We are the STEAM Alliance, but sometimes we just say STEM. What’s up with that?
While we don’t formally promote programming that is exclusively of the Arts, we do recognize the natural and necessary contribution of creative skills to all STEM fields.
We ask the question: How do we best prepare our young people for 21st century citizenship?
We need innovators, entrepreneurs and inventors! We see an opportunity to infuse STEM with the Arts so learning and production can happen at and because of their intersection. Creative and artistic strategies can spark a transformation in STEM education. It is our goal to make STEM opportunities more accessible and less intimidating, to invite creative minds to explore their potential in STEM and to cultivate critical thinkers, ready to make their mark.
Great innovators from Leonardo DaVinci to Steve Jobs learned, thrived and produced at the intersection of art, science, engineering, math and technology. Great teams in today’s thriving industries are comprised of diverse skill sets. Their aggregate creativity and mastery makes invaluable improvements to our world.
