Smith College STEAM Outreach Team

STEAM Team 2023-2024

The original STEM team has evolved from science, technology, engineering and math to include the arts (STEAM), thereby creating a new lens by which our offerings are intended to be more diverse and holistic. 

Our evolving STEAM initiatives include on- and off-campus opportunities, and our connections with learning partners span multiple communities, including K–12 educational institutions to adult learning organizations. We are also widening our reach to include essential partners focused on humanitarian, social justice and environmental awareness efforts.

“As a member of the STEAM Team (a branch of the Jandon Center), I have been able to work with intelligent and considerate team members, and explore various interests in the sciences while also integrating my passion for the arts. Although college is very busy and academically charged, the Jandon Center at Smith makes it possible to become a part of the greater community and feel the benefits of activist work while also striving toward desirable academic goals.”
Emma Robertson
“The main events I participated in were the CT Science center, Geek is Glam, and the Enfield Public Library workshop. Both parents and students were very engaged. I really enjoyed sharing our academic/future career paths and giving students an idea of what is possible and that they will find their way!”
