Parent Organization: Rutgers - New Brunswick
Rutgers STEAM is a growing student-led movement to integrate traditionally-disparate fields and mindsets, broadly in the areas of the STEM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) and the Arts and Humanities. We started at Rutgers University in New Brunswick and are working on developing STEAM as a tool that enables, whether it be enabling learning, open discussions, product improvements, or new ideas and inventions. In the real world, each of us will have to work alongside those with different skillsets and thought processes, and STEAM emulates both this understanding and teamwork as well as encourages it. It seeks to open those in the STEM fields to more creative branches of thought, and those in the arts to more methodical implementations. These intersecting areas will be the hub that will drive forward innovation, manifested through discussions, workshops, projects, trips, and other events, all of which will showcase how these integrations can work alongside one another to solve problems, explore ideas, evaluate beauty in its different abstractions, and above all, make a difference.
