With a grant from the National Science Foundation, two powerhouses in changing youth experiences, EDC and Artists For Humanity (AFH), have joined forces to connect under-resourced youth in Boston, Mass. to science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) learning and careers. The project, STEAM Power, builds on AFH’s highly successful out-of-school art and design program for Boston youth. In the project, EDC Distinguished Scholar and co-Principal Investigator Lynn Goldsmith (at left) is partnering with AFH to collaboratively refine and disseminate AFH’s innovative approach to connecting under-resourced youth to the STEM pipeline through authentic art-making experiences.
