STEM to STEAM

Congresswoman Bonamaci asks about the importance of STEAM education

Charles Vest, National Academy of Engineering President and former MIT President states, “I cannot imagin MIT without it’s visual arts component, it would not be MIT and we would not attract those kinds of kinds. Any of the really good high schools that are succeeding….the integration of Arts into their curriculum is very important part. The maker movement attracts kids from left brain and right brain and everything in between. I’m a big believer in the STEAM movement-we are failing in our core STEM areas.”
