[Yasmin_discussions] Is STEM an Idea whose time has passed


our discussion has gone quiet as to whether art science collaboration
contributes to scientific research- the next step seems to be to
compile a blibliography documenting specific examples if anyone knows
of such a bilbliography or would like to work on one contact me at

meanwhile i propose to segue onto a connected topic that discusses
the STEM to STEAM movement

There is an active discussion these days as to whether there is really
a shortage of STEM trainied professionals

A recent article in IEEE Spectrum argues

,,,And yet, alongside such dire projections, you'll also find reports
suggesting just the opposite—that there are more STEM workers than
suitable jobs.

Can we argue that what is missing is STEAM professionals ?
