All STEAMed Up

February 1, 2017 — 
STEAM came about as a way to take what are known as the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) and incorporate Art and Design into the mix. The program endeavours to dispel the twin myths of the socially awkward, uncommunicative scientist and the self-involved, impractical artist while simultaneously using artistic creativity and practical science not only to facilitate innovation, but to make the subjects more accessible to those not currently involved with STEM.
