RISD STEAM is a student-run organization at RISD founded in 2011 by Sarah Pease. The organization is part of a national movement, led by RISD, 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. Some of our projects include: A teaching partnership with JCDSRI, a lecture from Theo Jansen, and an interdisciplinary class with MIT and Brown STEAM, called Human + Computer. Learn more about what we've done in the Projects pages.
For a full list of projects, see our Project Archive page.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
