“STEM without STEAM loses steam. STEM to STEAM will power our country forward.” -Yo-Yo Ma
STEM= Science, Technology, Engineering and Math
STEAM= Science, Technology, Engineering, ARTS and Math.
Without the ARTS, we will lose steam, funding, education and immigration reform for the arts is just as important as for any other STEM division. We need creative thinkers who can look outside of the box with an innovative mind. Please listen to Yo-Yo Ma’s inspiring speech at the Nancy Hanks Lecture at The Americans for the Arts Convention of 2013.
