STEAM Festival projects from Seminar 1 and Seminar 3 across Macaulay’s eight campuses are hosted together on this site, and guides are available to show you how to navigate and engage with students’ works. Rather than an online adaptation of an in-person event, this is an innovative online, asynchronous common event intended to give students an opportunity to share work with one another and the greater public while respecting public safety guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Our guides feature possible plans for incorporating the STEAM festival into seminar 1 and seminar 3 classrooms. The guides also show users how to browse through this site on their own, without any follow-up or additional activities, in order to engage with what students have produced in their arts and sciences seminars during this time of remote-learning. In the past, students have researched the relationship between zip codes and greenspaces in New York City in seminar 3 and created videos or interactive sculptures in seminar 1. Students continue to produce thoughtful, public-facing projects and we are delighted to be able to share this work.
