and Teaching at 5 Summer STEAM Camps with Florida State
College and Libraries.
William and Aida Jackson STEAM educators in Jacksonville,
Florida have been honored to be selected to speak at “STEAM
Camp A Global Conversation Conference” held virtually
on the global Clubhouse platform. The new global audio
platform “Clubhouse” is changing the way conferences
are held and how professional development is being provided.
Their works in teaching, advocating and providing free
STEAM workshops in Jacksonville have been recognized
and respected locally, nationally and globally.
STEAM – Science Technology Engineering Arts Math are
growing educational initiatives that are defining the learning
foundations of youth, teens and young adults especially
Black and Brown children in communities of poverty and
under privileged status. African American, Hispanic, Mexican
and other children of color are behind in many areas, proper
training in areas of Technology, STEM, STEAM and STREAM
are key skills that youth need to be employable in the future.
The importance and influence of STEM, STEAM and STREAM
Education that are influencing future careers integrates the
skills and abilities that businesses are demanding and are
looking for in the future workforce. The demand has grown
more urgently as the pandemic is changing the social
reliability on technology application and integration.
Businesses are allowing their workers to stay at home to
work remotely and need their workers to be tech savvy,
STEAM is one of the keys.
So influential is STEAM that schools are changing their
curriculums to provide STEM, STEAM and STREAM
Education. Globally the value is being shown as
conferences are demanding educational experts to
speak and teach like William and Aida Jackson. They
are providing a narrative of how tech is changing education,
career development and the hiring processes of people
of color and culture.
William and Aida Jackson, advocates of STEAM for several
years, have spoken at conferences nationally and globally
pre-pandemic, have been requested to speak and teach
at several STEAM Conferences and to teach at STEAM
