Our DPEA Director spoke about the positive impacts of adding Art to a STEM curriculum to create an integrated STEAM curriculum. He shared how the DPEA's projects draw upon a variety of disciplines and give students the opportunity to develop authentic products. Amir spoke with many individuals about their programs and shared wisdom about how to innovate within the public school system in California. He also had the opportunity to give advice to college students who wanted to know how to gain more technical experience as they develop original products.
