Youth STEAM leaders on imagination and experimentation

Science, technology, engineering, the arts, and mathematics (STEAM) are propelled by imagination and experimentation. STEAM intersects with many facets of our lives, and creative problem-solving and innovation in these fields has never been more vital.

As part of a new series for youth, by youth, The Walrus Talks at Home: Ingenuity brings together four youth leaders who are questioning the status quo and rethinking our world. Our speakers have a broad range of interests—from artificial intelligence to health care to the climate crisis to poetry. However, they are united by their curiosity and desire for new knowledge.

These youth speakers will give audiences an insight into their motivations and processes, showcasing the potential of STEAM.

Be inspired by these young trailblazers so that we can all work towards shaping a better future.
