From STEM to STEAM

Rhode Island School of Design’s quest to add Art & Design in STEM curriculums starts with Pelosi?

Back in June, the US House Democratic Leader met with local congressmen and RISD President to discuss how art/design can better the state’s economy. She commended the efforts of congressmen Cicilline and Langevin for pushing art and design into the already established Science-Technology-Engineering-Math curriculum. As education is about innovation, it is only apparent to include the Arts.

Where would user experience be without design or Warhol without printmaking? Art is an expression, a burst of energy through your fingertips. It is in every way creative, innovative, and imaginative.
