About STEAMed Van Initiative:

The STEAM vehicle initiative is designed to address the critical need of engaging students in the process of innovation, creativity and technology so that they can become college and career ready. In addition the project will address the critical need for students to become creators of knowledge while presenting, sharing and publishing their designs and solutions to a larger audience, engaging in discourse around their designs, creations and inventions.

A focus of the vehicle is to bring tactile STEAM experiences for both teachers and students into schools and community organizations. A series of visits are planned to support the students and teacher. The vehicle is equipped with the latest technologies including 3d printers and scanners, laser cutter, Venier probeware, mini mills, Makey Makey creative kits , Robotlabs, Arduino, Galileo and wearable e-textile computers, and mobile internet access. NYIT faculty, staff and students who are from the STEM disciplines, will staff the vehicle.
