Boston University STEAM

BU STEAM is a student group at Boston University that strives to illuminate and make accessible the technical aspects of the STEM fields through the arts so that these fields can be more easily understood and appreciated by all. We aim to more fully integrate creative problem-solving in order to invite a unique approach to real world STEM problems that cannot simply be solved with current by-the-book methods. Additionally, BU STEAM endeavors to create works around the BU Community that use STEM as a tool to reflect artistic or philosophical questions about the world.

We inspire discussion about the inherent overlap of the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics fields and empower all generations to embrace the interconnectivity of these fields. In addition to the exchange of ideas, we conduct interdisciplinary projects that contribute both technically and aesthetically to our community, and integrate our STEAM ideals through after school programs at public schools in the greater Boston area.
