STEAM (STEM + Arts) Projects

Science & Society has a number of efforts focused on STEAM (the interface of STEM and the Arts)

The 2019 Duke STEAM Forum was an afternoon full of great discussion about how STEM and the Arts intersect at Duke. We are so excited to continue this conversation and to explore more paths for STEAM at Duke in the future.

Art of a Scientist Gig Posters

Art of a Scientist

Initially developed by three Duke graduate students including current Science & Society postdoctoral fellow Ariana Eily, Art of a Scientist is an annual exhibit that brings together scientists and artists to create artistic interpretations of scientific concepts and communicate them to the public.


Duke STEAMTeam

Supported by a Duke ICPG (Intellectual Community Planning Grant), this project brings together Duke faculty, staff, administration and students across a variety of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, arts and humanities disciplines to explore overlapping and complementary interests, and promote more sustained and vigorous interdisciplinary research, academic coursework and public engagement in the STEAM space, both within and beyond Duke.


Allen Building STEAM Art Exhibit

Curated by Science & Society postdoctoral fellow Ariana Eily, this temporary exhibit in the halls of Duke’s Allen Building (home to Duke’s President) explores STEAM topics through visual images.
