Please join us for an open forum on current and future developments in STEAM at UConn and beyond.

We hope to generate a wide-ranging discussion, structured around brief remarks by invited speakers drawn from faculty across the university and from industry. The event is open to all UConn faculty, staff, and students, and to the general public. Refreshments will be provided.
