STEAM Education - putting the Arts in STEM education. Make their eyes pop and their curiosity peak - and the education will follow! Funding cuts aren't just hurting Science, Technology, Engineering & Math; the fine arts are taking a blow as well. Learn how to do more with less using techniques that explore STEM education through visual exploration, in a discussion moderated by two practicing science illustrators. Techniques from field sketching, data visualization, live-scribing, and metaphor building help organize the enthusiasm for STEAM and make students accomplished science communicators. How do visuals affect your own field? There is currently a lot of enthusiasm for STEAM and little organization to accomplish it. As scientists and science communicators, what can we do to facilitate this change?

Questions:
- How do visuals affect your own field?
- How do students discover effective visuals?
- What techniques can anyone apply to help understand science?
- As scientists and science communicators, what can we do to facilitate STEAM education?
