The STEAM Factory

Founded by a collection of young and energetic OSU faculty, postdocs and staff, the STEAM Factory is a diverse and inclusive grass-roots network in the OSU community that facilitates creative and interdisciplinary collaboration, innovation and dissemination.

The twin cores of STEAM Factory activity are Collaboration and Dissemination.

Collaboration: The STEAM Factory provides a space where researchers from all disciplines can broaden their perspectives, share resources, spark creative research ideas and form collaborations across areas of common interest.

Dissemination: The STEAM Factory helps to bridge the gap between OSU and the Columbus community through research dissemination and outreach that is accessible, approachable and combines formal and informal learning.

Our Goals:

  • To provide opportunities for collaboration that enhance and drive innovation within all research disciplines;
  • To provide linkages and interdisciplinary interactions between OSU departments and colleges; and
  • To increase the public awareness, understanding and impact of OSU research.
