Students and faculty at Claremont Graduate University (CGU) have collaborated to launch an online journal that explores the intersection of the arts and the science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields.
The first issue of the STEAM Journal was published on March 13 and is available at http://scholarship.claremont.edu/steam.
Over the past decade, a movement has emerged emphasizing the importance of teaching students in the STEM fields in order to prepare them for the 21st Century workforce.
But those skills alone are insufficient. The next generation of scientists, engineers, and mathematicians will also need education in the arts to help them unlock their potential for creativity and innovation.
The STEAM Journal serves as a hub for scholars and practitioners of many disciplines who wish to provide commentary, exchange ideas, and inform policy and practice of STEAM. Topics are generated by the range of submissions received.
"The STEAM Journal recognizes that art and science have a symbiotic relationship," said Sara Kapadia, the journal's founder and editor and a doctoral student in CGU's School of Educational Studies. "We created it as a conduit for building new knowledge and paving the way for research, collaboration, and discussion. It is our hope that this journal will amplify the rigor, effort, and span of the transdisciplinary work being done in STEAM."
A team of graduate students, alumni, and faculty from Claremont Graduate University and other institutions aided Kapadia in the launch of the journal.
The journal accepts original articles and artwork for publication. Kapadia said it will publish twice per year.
