Design For Steam: Creating Participatory Art With Purpose, Nick Kamienski, Nicole M. Radziwill

The STEAM Journal

Innovation is simultaneously reflected in the variety and diversity of art. Over the past century, art forms have progressed along a continuum from static to dynamic, and then to interactive and participatory. The therapeutic value of creating and engaging in all of these art forms has also been identified. Furthermore, educators have recognized the profound value of art and design within the context of scientific and technical learning, and STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) has emerged as an educational philosophy with a strong base of support. This paper defines and articulates participatory elements of STEAM projects, and provides ...

And what are some reasons for affirming the arts when the role of engineering is clarified?
