In the innovation field, a rebirth of Renaissance thinking is brewing. Scientists and engineers are engaging with the arts to think creatively.

 

The idea is also currently reflected in the debates on re-vamping the U.S. educational system to boost the innovation skills of U.S. students. Media artist John Maeda, president of the Rhode Island School of Design, has spoken at numerous events — including before Congress — about the value of incorporating the arts to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) educational initiatives, turning STEM to “STEAM,” as Maeda has said.

The Arts is the mixing bowl for science, technology, engineering and math.

Some disciplines have evolved to their own death. Engineering has evolved logically, but not necessarily culturally,” Silver of Intel and Makey Makey, who was trained as an electrical engineer, told me at PopTech. “Creativity isn’t part of that any more. So we look to where it is; we’re desperate for it. We look to art. And it’s wonderful, because it’s there.”

STEAM Ahead: Merging Arts and Science Education

STEAM Ahead: Merging Arts and Science Education | STEM | Scoop.it

At Wolf Trap's Institute of Education, they are trying something different by incorporating art with math and science.

It's part of a different STEM movement gaining momentum, called "STEAM" - science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics, a match that may seem a little strange, but a no brainer for some.
