Connecting Scientists and Artists for STEAM Placemaking

Brain

Science to Street Art is a collaborative project that aims to visually inspire STEAM education and careers through the innovative planning, design and management of public spaces known as Placemaking.

The initiative is two-fold: 1) the creation of STEAM civic art spotlighting graffiti and hip-hop art forms, and 2) a festival of workshops connecting street art to science curriculum and story.

Public Art:
