As you can imagine, I’ve been struggling with this presentation. They want literacy and today’s kids, but I want to take another stab at describing a balance between STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) and the creative arts. I’ve beat this drum before here, but I think that the language for describing this compellingly is still out there.
I finished up the presentation yesterday, all except for the final slide. I tried making STEM AND MAD (music, art, & drama) into a meaningful anogram, but the best I could come up with was DAMNED ANT. No good!
Finally, this morning, I settled on:
STEM without the creative arts, is just machinery!
..because the creative arts are the language of the 21st Century.
How would you close it? Where is the balance?
