STEAM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths. It extends the traditional STEM subjects by adding arts into the mix. While often seen as very different disciplines, arts and sciences in fact have a lot in common and many interesting ideas take shape where they meet. Bringing together these fields also opens up new ways of engagement and learning, connecting researchers, practitioners and communities.
The Old Abbey acts as a hub for STEAM events around the Universities, the Manchester Science Partnerships and Hulme, with an exciting series of workshops called STEAM into HULME.
Here are some impressions from previous events:
