S.T.E.A.M Power

Animation, 2017

Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math all play a crucial role in our day-to-day lives. That is why for my animation, “S.T.E.A.M Power”, I looked for a way to show that S.T.E.A.M can be used by anybody, anywhere, and at anytime. The girl creates her first set of Steampunk goggles out of old gears and newfound technology. I chose to incorporate Steampunk fashion because it shows all the innovations and inventions the science and math fields have to offer, but includes elements of old Victorian art styles. The girl develops her own invention, which shows that S.T.E.A.M has an impact on everybody, and that these fields can be used in various ways in order to express one’s true identity. It is important we push students to explore S.T.E.A.M, as it can be the start of something great in their lives. S.T.E.A.M has the power to open up people’s minds to opportunities that were never imaginable. That is why I titled my animation “S.T.E.A.M Power” because it indicates that with the use of these fields, individuals have the power to achieve greatness and create a life of their own.
