Moving from STEM to STEAM: What Really Works

NEFDCThis New England Faculty Development Consortium conference at the Roger Williams University discusses the transition from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering & Math) to STEAM (STEM with Art). From learning about successful STEAM projects and through practical workshops and helpful lessons for educators this conference will provide ways that teachers can implement art in the classroom. This is a great step forward for implementing STEAM in the classroom.

One presentation “Scientific Illustrations Improved through Visual Arts Intervention” by Lisa Delissio of Salem State University is a good example of how art introduces observational techniques through teaching drawing principles to enhance scientific knowledge building. Read more about it here.

China Blue

China Blue is an award winning international artist whose current work focuses on the brain. Brainwaves of individuals, sensed through her customized EEG software, control the light and sound of an interactive sculpture and also dynamically create personal mind produced drawings. Over the past two decades she has created sound art works that focus on researching and developing data sonification. This has lead to discovering the hidden acoustics imbedded in the iron of the Eiffel Tower, submerged in Venice’s water or encased in NASA’s Vertical Gun chamber. She is also the Founder and Executive Director of The Engine Institute.
