CincyArtsandSTEM.org is an online resource to help parents and teachers find programs, activities, summer camps, field trips and other services to augment their children’s education that are connected to arts and STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).
“Both the arts and STEM are vital parts of education, and both our organizations are focused on ensuring that students in Greater Cincinnati develop the skills necessary to succeed in the 21st century workforce: innovation, creativity, collaboration and more,” said ArtsWave President and CEO Alecia Kintner. “Working together to create a single spot for parents and educators to find all the best resources for their children just made sense.”
Sean Kelley, a GCSC co-leader and director of Greater Cincinnati’s Talent Pipeline Initiative, said it’s critical to integrate the arts into STEM programs to promote a well-rounded education and foster innovative thinking.
“We believe that CincyArtsandSTEM.org is a good first step in this collaboration between our organizations and that this blended strategy will lead the nation in how to think about the arts and STEM together,” Kelley said.
Organizations and program providers can create online profiles and upload their program information to CincyArtsandSTEM.org for free. At the time of launch, more than 30 organizations had uploaded nearly 100 events and programs.

CincyArtsandSTEM.org is built on the same platform that ArtsWave used to create CincyArtsGuide.com , a searchable online event calendar that launched in September.
