University Museums recently unveild a new exhibit, "FULL STEAM AHEAD: Creativity, Beauty, Science and Engineering" that will run from April 22 – June 28 in the lower level of the Christian Peterson Museum.
This exhibition examines the rich benefits of looking at art and STEM together, illustrating the new acronym STEAM – science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics. It also traces both the historic tensions over women’s place in these fields and the present-day achievements of women artists, scientists and engineers.
The exhibit is open to the public and is approporate for all ages.
This material is based on work supported by a grant from the National Science Foundation, that was awarded to Amy Bix, professor in the Department of History.
