Since our opening in 2013, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Design, and Mathematics) has been at the foundation of our efforts to inspire transdisciplinary research and discovery connecting technology and communities. We believe the framework of STEAM offers the greatest potential for advancing learning at all levels. But at ExCITe, STEAM is more than education. It’s the belief that the creativity and “maker” spirit that is common to both the Arts & Design and the STEM fields provides a relentless source of inspiration and innovation. Most importantly, the convening of diverse perspectives spanning STEM and the Arts offers unique opportunities to share ideas, form new connections, and sow the seeds of transformation.
The third annual STEAM Education Workshop will take place on February 20, 2017 at the ExCITe Center featuring presentations by
Amy Cline, Science Teacher, AIM Academy
John Kamal, Engineering Teacher, Science Leadership Academy
Andrew Bennett Jackson, Graduate Assistant, Roxborough High School STEAM Lab
