The goal of adding "art" to STEM is to foster the true innovation that comes with combining the mind of a scientist or technologist with that of an artist or designer. Think of da Vinci!

From STEM to STEAM: Brent Bushnell and Eric Gradman at TEDxManhattanBeach

Brent Bushnell and Eric Gradman, co-founders of LA-based Two Bit Circus, energize their audience with the STEAM Carnival, a way to make entertainment more enriching and education more fun. Armed with the knowledge that the U.S. may be short as many as three million high-skills workers by 2018, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math need to get more interesting in order to attract students to those fields of study. Bushnell and Gradman share their stories about how the need for art and creativity drove them from their "real jobs" to a job they can't get enough of.
