STEM Spots: STEAM is the Word

Keri Franklin is an English professor at MSU.  She also has a background in technical writing and a strong desire to infuse writing into fields where it isn’t emphasized.  In that context, her interest in STEAM, which stands for Science, Technology. Engineering, Arts and Mathematics, makes complete sense. 


Whether STEAM is a partnership grounded in necessity or one plumbing deep connections, it is clear that the language arts are essential in the STEM fields and thus can benefit all of us.  Listen in as she talks about the work she has done and hopes to continue.
