Presented by the Gallery at Tempe Center for the Arts, this fun and fast-paced TED Talk-style panel highlights some of the hottest examples of the integration of science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics (STEAM) happening in the Valley. Each of the 5 speakers from the arts, education and technology sectors will be given 7 minutes to excite and inspire you to never say “STEM” again. Our team of STEAM leaders will heat up your grey matter noodles and engage your inner creative with subjects like medical microscopy,3D spatial modeling, forensic facial reconstruction and biomimicry. Participants will also not want to miss STEAM inspired programs at the Gallery at Tempe Center for the Arts including current exhibition STEAM (thru Sept. 17) and the summer 2017 exhibition Biomimicry.
