About RISD

RISD STEAM is a student group at the Rhode Island School of design which aims to engage students with the rising push to include art and design thinking into the traditional “STEM” model of education. By turning STEM into STEAM, the club strives to foster a new kind of learning, promoting high-level, transformative thinking among the next generation of leaders and innovators. We encourage students to investigate the principles of STEAM in their own work, by hosting events and building networks within the Providence community and with students from neighbouring institutions such as Brown University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology.


RISD STEAM is a student-run organization sponsored by the Rhode Island School of Design Center for Student Involvement.
