The STEAM project is presented by the UCF ICubed project and funded by the National Science Foundation and University of Central Florida. STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics.
The initiative has brought together science and arts faculty members and their students to create paintings, sculptures, drawings and posters that illustrate the complex research of genetic coding, theoretical physics and other topics to those that may not readily grasp the ideas.
Participating Art and Design students attend a 3-week long seminar, as part of their course of study, and produce science-inspired art based on the STEM researcher’s explanations of science and engineering concepts. During the past two years, research students have met with art students to explain scientific breakthroughs and concepts. The artists, in turn, created tangible artifacts to exemplify the ideas.
