For much of the last century, STEM disciplines—Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math—have been instrumental to shaping the world we live in.
From the satellites and airplanes that keep people connected across the globe to the invisible, underground flows of electricity and fuel that keep our world moving, and everything in between, STEM knowledge has provided the building blocks of safe, healthy, and prosperous societies today.
But as we look to the challenges of the next century and grapple with questions of identity, inclusivity, and self-expression, it is clear that art and design will play a critical role in driving the innovation and critical thinking required to create a better future for everyone.
