2018 STEAM Youth and Community Conference

STEAM

[noun]

  1. Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics
  2. An educational approach that integrates Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics and applies them to real world scenarios

Our Vision

Preparing students to become the STEAM literate citizens of tomorrow is a community effort that starts with parents and family members, and extends to include contributions from educators in K-12 schools, community colleges and universities; religious and other community leaders; and members from the local business industry. Engaging the entire community to support this effort is crucial.

 

Why this conference?

The University of San Diego hosts an annual one-day STEAM Youth and Community Conference to mobilize the community to help provide new pathways for youth to ignite, develop and pursue their STEAM interests, while simultaneously elevating the STEAM literacy, awareness and nurturing potential of the community.

Attendance is free and open to all members of the community (i.e. students, family members, educators, community leaders, etc.) Join us for a day of engaging and inspiring presentations and interactive STEAM workshops from STEAM professionals, leaders, students and educators. Presentations will be given in English and in Spanish. We will have raffles and giveaways and lunch will be provided.

You will then use microscopes to look for virus in insect samples. Don't worry, this disease is only deadly for caterpillars, and is perfectly safe for humans! Participants will also find out about opportunities to act as citizen scientists and make observations of these butterflies in their homes or classrooms. You might even go home with a beautiful (and tasty!) passionflower plant to attract these butterflies in your own yard.

    Paper Engineering

    What mysteries of the universe can we unlock by understanding how nature folds? Separately, what innovations are possible by the applications of the folding patterns and sequences to be discovered in nature? Today, in many fields, across the arts and sciences, these questions are being explored, and there is no reason for this trend to not only continue, but to actually increase: Inherent in all patterns and structures are potentials which, when understood, not only lead to our deepening of our understanding of the natural universe—but can also lead to applications of, hopefully, new innovations and technologies. I have devised a series of challenges to help facilitate this, so come joins us, and we can see what unfolds...
