Title: GIVE ME "STEAM"! Create your own art with mathematics and create your own mathematics with art!

Experience Workshop

The integrated approach to science-, technology-, engineering-, arts- and mathematics-learning–known as STEAM–is becoming increasingly important. Traditional models of accumulating knowledge are being replaced by networked models of learning. The development of collaborative problem-solving skills, enabling students to discover unexpected connections between different aspects of various phenomena, is not only an effective tool, but also a goal of today’s education. Phenomenon based learning opens the school to transdisciplinary, experience-oriented and collaborative teaching methods, which offers new opportunities for mathematics learning as well.

In this presentation, I will introduce the collaborative efforts of mathematicians, artists, teachers, parents and students in international STEAM- communities, like the Bridges Organization (, which organized its’ congress in University of Jyväskylä in 2016; the Experience Workshop (, which is active in University of Jyväskylä’s mathematics education-related projects and debuted in Helsinki Design Week as well; and the International Symmetry Association (, which organized its’ congress at the Vienna University of Technology in 2016.

In addition to examples of boosting student engagement by connecting mathematics and arts in school and out-of-school settings, we will also discuss experiments of connecting hands-on and digital modeling in the learning process.
