STEAMivism - A Conference to Remember.

STEAMivism (August 7th-9th): a one-of-a-kind, completely youth-run, 3-day conference with internationally renowned speakers consisting of Music Producers, Photographers, UX Designers, Activists, Bio Artists, Tech CEOs, and more. Our aim was to provide holistic, interactive STEAM education in a unique way to disadvantaged students and students with limited resources. We positively impacted 1,000 people globally through our diverse array of seminars and workshops.

Through STEAMivism, we are hoping to change the face of STEM education for students going forward, and push for accessible, interactive, and diverse education for all.

  • Changing the face of STEM education for students

  • Providing students with resources regardless of their financial status

  • Promoting representation among educators so students can also feel recognized

  • Expose students to unique careers and ways in which STEM and art can intersect
