STEAM Conference

FROM THE Education

Seasonal Description - Spring:

The STEAM conference provides youth and their families to explore activities focused in Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts/Architecture/Agriculture, and Mathematics (STEAM), and introduce them to careers related to STEM. Through student-led, project-based, and career-oriented workshops, the STEAM conference gives the opportunity for participants to increase their motivation to pursue careers in STEM. As a collaborative effort between Scientists for Tomorrow, an initiative recognized and funded by the National Science Foundation, headquartered at the Columbia College Chicago Department of Science and Mathematics, and the TRIO Upward Bound Math and Science Program, at the Center for College Access and Success from Northeastern Illinois University, the STEAM Conference has been an annual tradition with a growing number of participants attending every year since it first launched in 2010.
