STEM THE ART was founded by Katherine Wong, a current high schooler who is passionate about both STEM and arts education. In addition to being a writer and musician, Katherine is also extremely interested in academic subjects from biology to natural history. Growing up, Katherine recognized that most school curriculum addressed STEM and the arts as being completely separate topics. She was often met with the stigma that artists and scientists were polar opposites, and one couldn’t simultaneously be the other. Katherine also recognized these same standards being put against her brother, who is an aspiring musician and mathematician.
