STEAM Meme Contest
Earlier this semester, MVCC's STEAM Advisory Committee held a STEAM Meme Contest designed to raise awareness of their work and to encourage development of the STEAM concept at the College. STEAM is an acronym that combines STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) and the Arts, and the committee is made up of MVCC faculty and staff interested in the similarities between these two normally divergent educational paths.
The contest invited all MVCC community members (students, faculty, staff, alumni) to create a STEAM meme that examined any relationship holding value between STEM and the Arts. Participants were asked to upload their meme to Instagram and tag @mvcc_steam. Winners were determined by Instagram likes and juried by members of the STEAM Advisory Committee. Contest winners are below. See full gallery of submitted memes.
