FORT COLLINS - Two renowned artists are teaming up to help encourage more girls to get involved in STEAM - science, technology, engineering, art and math -- studies in their schools.
Kate Lindeen has launched #ChangeThePattern, an initiative that highlights the need to change the pattern of too few girls and women studying and entering STEAM careers.
Grounded in her public blog - (Re) Designing Women - and Terri Fry Kasuba's fine art series - Full STEAM Ahead - the movement seeks to promote understanding of STEAM and the diverse thinking and problem-solving that females bring to each discipline.
Kasuba is donating 100 percent of the profits from the Full STEAM Ahead art series through Oct. 31 to Pretty Brainy, a Fort Collins-based nonprofit organization that promotes girl participation in STEAM studies.
From Nov. 1 to Jan. 1, Pretty Brainy will receive 20 percent of the profits from the works.
The Full STEAM Ahead product line includes fine art prints and stretched canvases, greeting cards and cases and skins for phones, tablets, eReaders, laptops and more.
