In Experimenting with STEAM, participants will learn the origins and possibilities of STEAM Education through hands-on experiments and critical discussions about contemporary art, teaching, and learning. Participants will discover how to simultaneously think like artists and scientists through experimenting with Artmaking Robots, Cameraless Photographs, Light Painting, and Inflatable Sculptures. Ultimately, Experimenting with STEAM will demystify STEAM Education, un-silo school disciplines, and provide innovative ideas and skills for today's K-12 teachers.

At this time, registration for Experimenting with STEAM is closed.
