Calling All Artists and STEM Professionals!

Engaging Creative Minds is in full planning mode for the 2017 Summer STEAM Institute at the College of Charleston and we are seeking Art Partners in the fields of Dance, Theater, Music, Visual Art and STEM to teach our weekly classes.

You will be notified, and the final schedule posted, no later than March 1st.

Collaborative planning meetings will be held in early June where you will have the opportunity to collaborate with other artists and certified teachers to create hands-on interdisciplinary weekly lesson plans based on the themes below.
