The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas hosted a STEAM-tastic forum on Thursday night, during which parents were informed on the importance of their children excelling in STEAM subjects in school. David Moody, founder of Jacksson David, a consulting firm in North Little Rock, talked to parents about the importance of recognizing science, technology, engineering, arts and math characteristics in their children and what to do once the discovery is made. The Jefferson County STEM Workforce Initiative is provided by a grant from Arkansas Department of Higher Education. This grant is a collaboration between The University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff, the Economic Development Alliance for Jefferson County and The Arts & Science Center for Southeast Arkansas. This is a pilot grant, and if it is successful, Jefferson County will receive $1 million for five years to fund this program. (Special to The Commercial/Shedelle Davis)
