St. Louis Avenue, Chicago, IL 60625 at 10:00am.
As a collaborative initiative between Columbia College Chicago and Northeastern Illinois University partnered with community based organizations; families and students; the annual STEAM Conference provides a space to further engage with STEAM education: Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/Architecture/Agriculture and Mathematics. A key feature of the conference is that the presenters are middle school and high school students that participate in pre-college academic programs, Scientist for Tomorrow Initiatives and Pathways Initiatives. Launched in 2010, participation in the yearly conference has grown steadily to include nearly one-thousand students from a variety of communities throughout the city of Chicago.
