The online STEAM conference will be held on Monday 13 July featuring a line-up of international keynote speakers alongside representatives from Birmingham City University (BCU) and STEAMhouse leading interactive discussions around the conference themes of;
- Innovation and Industry
- Makerspaces and Communities of Practice,
- Creativity the Arts and the Sciences
- Courses and Curriculum
BCU has a strong reputation in STEAM practice and thinking built on many years of project work in the field and the success of its STEAMhouse Phase 1 project at Digbeth. Launching the international conference is an important forward step in strengthening BCU’s reputation and extending the University’s academic reach internationally. Senior Development Manager Dr Tom Cahill-Jones explains;
“The conference is aimed at all those curious about cross-disciplinary thinking and its themes will be of interest to industrial leaders, researchers, innovators, artists, scientists, technologists, engineers, mathematicians – in fact, anyone not bounded by their sectors”.
“By moving the conference online we aim to continue our support for cross-disciplinary knowledge whilst ensuring the safety of our delegates and speakers. We are currently finalising the event schedule and our line-up of speakers and are delighted to announce that Dr David Gillette from Cal Poly in California will be joining us as keynote speaker to discuss future-focused storytelling, interactive design and sustainable futures. We will be making more exciting announcements about other speakers very soon”.
“We are confident that this re-imagined event will hold true to the goals of STEAM, providing a platform for all those interested in the intersection of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths”.
