Thanks to the Urban Arts Partnership/Rosie Perez for introducing me to the idea of Arts Integration; to Gavin Andrews, Emily Scheinberg, Meg Winikates, and Jane Winchell of the Peabody Essex Museum for introducing me to the term STEAM; RISD and the MIT Media lab for the work they’ve done to spearhead the STEAM idea nationally; and to Jose Nieto, Dr. Jude Nixon, Dr. Mark Fregeau, Dr. Juditha Burchstead, Gavin Andrews, Emily Scheinberg, Meg Winikates, Jane Winchell, Alexa Ogno, Dr. Brian Drayton, Christine Piwonka, Sean Doherty, Dr. Joe Buttner, Masato Tani, Dr. Dakin Burdick, and librarian extraordinaire Nancy Dennis for turning me onto groovy ideas in STEAM.
