The Annual STEAM Conference brings Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/Architecture/Agriculture, and Mathematics (STEAM) workshops led by middle, high school and college students as well as educators and STEM professionals. The STEAM Conference provides content through the use of project-based, hands-on and career-oriented workshop sessions.
“Our goal is to engage and foster STEM/STEAM education through project-based, career oriented and hands on activities. Motivating our youth to pursue greater enrollment in math and science courses in high school and consider a path into post secondary education in STEM/STEAM fields.”
The STEAM Conference is an event developed and designed by the TRIO Upward Bound Math and Science program at the Center for College Access and Success from Northeastern Illinois University in collaboration with the NSF Scientists for Tomorrow program at the Science Institute in the Department of Science and Mathematics from Columbia College Chicago.
