   STEM stands for "Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics" and
   is a popular educational and academic focus despite its divisiveness in
   excluding the importance of the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences.
   STEAM stands for "Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, and
   Mathematics". STEM to STEAM is an important RISD initiative:
