Why STEAM Should be the Future of STEM Education

ITEA members will receive credit towards CPE’s. If you are currently not a member the cost to attend is $25. Please call 951-219-4817 to register if you are not a member. If you would like to become one, please visit our online store. 

With STEM education rising as a priority for promoting innovation internationally, a key question remains: without creativity and the arts, can our future STEM professionals innovate as effectively? In this talk, Dr. Jordan, Associate Professor of Engineering Education and Director of the STEAM Labs Center for K-12 Research and Engagement at Arizona State University will discuss educational movements toward STEAM (STEM + Arts) and how STEAM can be used to capture the hearts and minds of our future STEM professionals. Dr. Jordan will share a variety of innovative examples of STEAM-based in-school and extracurricular activities, including a culturally-relevant engineering design curriculum for the Navajo Nation, STEAM camps that teach the engineering design process and oral storytelling, and ITEA-sponsored STEAM hackathons that engage students in rapid chain-reaction machine builds. Finally, Dr. Jordan will share thoughts on how testing is a necessary part of any arts-infused design process, where “failure” means you have taken an innovative risk and learned two things: what doesn’t work, and what does.
