VH1 Save The Music Foundation is announcing its first-ever Keynote Assembly, which will be a town hall discussion on STEM vs. STEAM education held at the Paley Center in New York City on tonight, Thursday, May 7, 2015 at 7:00pm ET.
The event will be livestreamed for parents, educators and community leaders across the country at live.vh1savethemusic.org.
Panelists from the worlds of education, the arts, policy, business, tech and media will share best practices, personal stories, scientific study, tools and ideas on STEAM education. Viewers can join the discussion on social media using #STEAMAssembly. The objective of this panel is to bring widespread awareness to STEAM and the fact that every child can learn and succeed through the Arts across all subject areas. With continued input from the panelists, VH1 Save The Music Foundation will compile a STEAM toolkit with recommendations and key findings for parents, educators and lawmakers to raise awareness of STEAM and foster nationwide growth in the movement. This report will be available in Fall 2015.
People are invited to attend the event in New York City, watch via livestream and join the conversation using #STEAMAssembly @VH1SaveTheMusic, and/or donate to VH1 Save The Music to make an impact on this movement.
