A future of global innovation requires the effort of a large and diverse community of minds. That means attracting more (a lot more) girls to the fields of science, engineering, technology, arts, and math, or STEAM.* With this in mind, [Re]Designing Women is partnering with artist Terri Fry Kasuba to create a monthly series of whimsical illustrations that explore each STEAM discipline and the challenge of how to get girls interested and engaged.
S is for SCIENCE
With S is for Science, Terri tackles the idea that to be equal does not mean to be the same. Topics or objects that are typically considered “girly” are no less worthy of our attention and can, in fact, be an effective way to inspire and attract our future scientists.
Go full STEAM ahead on all of your devices by downloading S is for SCIENCE wallpapers. You can also support the cause when you purchase items from Terri's STEAM collection! For a limited time, 100% of artist proceeds will go to Pretty Brainy®, a nonprofit organization dedicated to boosting girls' interest in STEAM.

* STEM to STEAM is a RISD-led initiative promoting the idea that design training can lead to more creative problem solving. As a creative professional working in the technology field, I’ve been lucky to participate in an ongoing Design Thinking Initiative with former RISD president John Maeda and I’ve seen firsthand how Design Thinking can inspire innovation and change.
