About Us

RISD STEAM is a student-run organization at RISD founded in 2011 by Sarah Pease. The organization is part of a national movement to include Art & Design in STEM Education. Through our programs and events, we aim to inspire a generation of creative problem solvers. We strongly believe multidisciplinary working & learning will empower teams in an increasingly connected world.

We investigate these ideas through workshops, lectures, and our publishing arm - STEAM Press. Through our events we engage with other college students, k-12, and the larger Providence community. Most of our projects right now are listed at our meta-group’s page, steamwith.us.



For a full list of projects, see our Project Archive page.

Get Involved

The best way to get involved is to add yourself to our e-mail list. We'll send you an email about once a week during the school year to keep you up to date with everything that is going on with STEAM. If you have a project in mind that you would like to collaborate with us on, don't hesitate to send us an email at info@steamwith.us.
