What are STEAM Exchanges?

STEAM Exchanges are monthly salon-style seminars centered around broad thematic topics and hosted by the STEAM Factory. Our monthly themed interdisciplinary seminars known as STEAM Exchanges bring multiple disciplines perspectives to bear on a single subject such as Conflict, Progress, or Bias.  Diverse speakers are invited to present on their research and discipline as it relates to the monthly thematic topic. These discussions are intended to highlight current research, bringing multiple disciplinary perspectives to bear on a single issue with the purpose of enhancing scholarly community and sense of belonging, identifying opportunities for cross-collaboration, encourage the sharing of individual expertise, tools and resources and to enhance teaching and facilitate professional development.


Benefits of attending and presenting at STEAM Exchanges:

•        Learn and share current research endeavors across disciplines on a single topical issue

•        Share tools, resources and data sets to enhance research and teaching methods

•        Identify possibilities and contacts for cross-collaboration on research topics

•        Fun, interesting and engaging way of making research connections
