In today’s world, learning happens throughout lifetimes, and across settings. What is the future of education and learning in our rapidly-changing world? We believe it combines ways of knowing and meaning-making that draw on the arts as well as the STEM disciplines, and we believe it is collective, collaborative and creative.
Dr Liz Coleman, School of Natural Sciences, at NUI Galway.

About the Event

This event invites all those all involved with public engagement, communication and education of science, technology, engineering, mathematics & the arts in the greater Galway area to an evening of discussion, networking & visioning for a new Galway STEAM Learning Community, with a view to providing transformational learning opportunities for people of all ages.

This is the first gathering of this community. It will involve a short introduction to the concept of a STEAM Learning Ecosystem, followed by a networking and idea generation session to share experiences, identify shared challenges, and to identify opportunities afforded by a local STEAM learning community. These will form the basis of a manifesto for the future direction of this network.

This event is open to those across all sectors, including primary, secondary, higher and further education; informal and non-formal STEM/STEAM education, communication and public engagement, community and voluntary organisations, arts and culture, research and academia, business and industry, and local government. Participants have the opportunity to shape the creation of a community of practice united around a common vision - a thriving Galway in which creativity, curiosity, and lifelong learning are accessible to all.

This is an in-person event kindly hosted by Galway City Museum.
