STEM to STEAM


See on Scoop.itEd Technovation

STEAM represents the economic progress and breakthrough innovation that comes from adding art and design to STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education and research: STEM + Art = STEAM. The value of art and design to innovation is clear: Artists and designers humanize technology, making it understandable and capable of bringing about societal change. The tools and methods of a studio-based education offer new models for creative problem solving, flexible thinking and risk-taking that are needed in today’s complex and dynamic world.

 

The STEM to STEAM Briefing was presented in cooperation with Congressman Jim Langevin (RI-2), the Rhode Island Science and Technology Advisory Council, the Rhode Island Foundation, Rhode Island College, and the Rhode Island Department of Education.
