News Image

Check out the latest edition of The Cambridge Life to learn more about the Cambridge STEAM  (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) Initiative.

The Cambridge STEAM Initiative is a partnership between the City of Cambridge, Cambridge Public Schools, and Cambridge Public Library created in 2016 to ensure that, through equitable access to high quality STEAM programming and resources, all Cambridge residents -- regardless of social and economic barriers -- are STEAM literate and possess the 21st Century Skills necessary to be successful, engaged, and responsible citizens in a rapidly changing world.

We believe that by engaging families in quality STEAM programs and by creating purposeful partnerships across our community, we can achieve that goal.

This issue features:

  • A Q & A with Sharlene Yang, Director of Cambridge STEAM Initiative, and  Sue Walsh, Assistant Director of Adult & Family Services for the Department of Human Services;
  • An article on the re-purposing of the historic Foundry building as a new Makerspace and job training for STEAM fields;
  • New STEAM Learning Lab, STEAM Academy, Tech Bar and The Hive Space (opening March 19) at Cambridge Public Library;
  • STEAM Out-of-School Time (OST) Programs;
  • STEAM programming at Cambridge Public Schools; and
  • STEAM Internships
