Congress Supporting STEAM thanks to RISD

Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) has been an advocate for STEAM on Capitol Hill for years.  Their efforts have led to the potential passage of STEAM as part of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act (ESEA) scheduled for final passage this December.  If passed, ESEA legislation will help RISD President Somerson and other leaders continue to show that there is no more relevant education to the needs of today’s world than one that offers students the ability to develop critical, innovative thinking and problem solving capabilities through hands-on making.  Go RISD!  Thank you for your efforts on the behalf of those who agree and believe in STEAM education.
