STEM, oft-used to describe the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics into a new transdisciplinary subject, is a dominate goal in education these days.  Are we missing something? What can the arts add to the experience of STEM learning? How can creativity enhance innovation? Enter the STEM to STEAM movement with an “A” for Arts.  Join OSU’s Dr. Kevin Patton from the Music Department, Dr. Ann Galligan of Northeastern University and Visiting Professor at U.O., and OSU Alum Ryan Mann from Oregon Congresswoman Suzanne Bonamici’s office as they make the argument for STEAM.  Learn about the origins and motivations for STEAM, the national climate on the issue including an update on the STEM to STEAM congressional caucus, trailblazing work here in Oregon and elsewhere, and opportunities for implementing STEAM at OSU.  Let’s imagine together how we might transform our own work and transcend the chasm between the STEM disciplines and the Arts.
