About Us

STEAM is a student-led effort to ignite communications between disparate fields in academia, business, and thought. Our focus is broad but our starting point is uniting the Arts with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics). We started at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and have grown on campuses throughout the United States.

This website is maintained by students at Brown University and RISD. For our most recent work, please see our Catalogue, and check out our school-specific pages: Brown. MIT. RISD. Yale. The New School. BU. Rutgers. Harvard. Read our recently released STEAM Catalogue 6, which documents the STEAM network's work from F2016–S2017.

Current Projects

BioSTEAM — BioSTEAM explores the intersection between living things and their visual aesthetics. Whether that is by understanding biological systems through art or merely highlighting the inherent visual beauty that is present in all aspects of Biology.

KinderSTEAM — KinderSTEAM is Brown/RISD STEAM club’s partnership with Jewish Community Day School of Rhode Island, a local Providence school for grades Pre-K-5.

citySTEAM — CitySTEAM explores the networks of information that exist within the built environment.

cyberSTEAM — cyberSTEAM investigates the ways computer science and technology can create art and understanding, whether through CAD, data visualization, or biohacking.

makeSTEAM — makeSTEAM is primarily focused with physical making of all sorts. We design, prototype, tinker, and build through workshops and events, exploring interesting forms, structures, and techniques for materializing ideas in physical space.
