About the Community
At The STEM Collective, we’re all about expanding that toolbox, and maximizing our use of the tools therein. We apply these tools to new problems, trying to understand the world around us through the lens of science. We dive into the physics and neuroscience of music in an interactive workshop to uncover why our favorite songs inspire us. We make pasta with a chemistry professor to explore the science of cooking.
Along the way, we expand the toolbox by using other disciplines to deconstruct STEM topics. Expect late-night pizza conversations about the philosophy of engineering or the social justice of technological advancement.
Most importantly, we share our tools. The STEM Collective is a venue for collaboration, support, and excitement over how STEM applies to the diverse things we’re learning. Expect to share cool things you’ve been learning with the floor, and put together awesome events for the campus to enjoy as well.
We want students excited to explore how people approach the world. We don’t mind if you’re not studying STEM, but we expect you to make active contributions to our goal—design events, attend meetings, and be a part of the community.
