Grant to let SUNY Potsdam bring arts, sciences together


POTSDAM — SUNY Potsdam is looking to explore ways to infuse the arts with science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

A grant received from a unit of the Lockheed Martin Corp. is helping develop a new curriculum to enrich STEM education with arts components.

Preliminary work involves researching the science of creativity and studying similar models in education and industry. The new program will offer opportunities for students to do hands-on work on longer-term projects.

“The complex problems in the world today demand scientists who can tackle issues creatively to develop the innovations that will lead to solutions,” said SUNY Potsdam Provost Margaret E. Madden, who leads the team developing the new curriculum.

The grant coincides with the school’s launch of Take the Lead campaign, addressing the campaign’s academic excellence priority.
