Shine a Light Through STEAM

Amber Helsel

Exhibit at the 2017 Mississippi Light Festival


Over the last few years, some of the hot topics in education have been science, technology, engineering, art and math, collectively known as STEAM.

Earlier this year, Anik Kurkjian and the Mississippi LIGHT Collaborative organized the first Mississippi LIGHT Festival, a STEAM-focused event that attracted more that 5,000 people to the Mississippi Museum of Art to see the different lighting displays, from a giant LIGHT sculpture to a silent disco and more.

On Tuesday, Sept. 19, Kurkjian and some of the collaborative will talk about the world of STEAM at the “Shining a Light on Mississippi Through S.T.E.A.M.” event, which is part of Millsaps College’s Arts & Lecture series.

The event is from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in the Gertrude C. Ford Academic Complex on the Millsaps campus (1701 N. State St.). Tickets for the event are $10. For more information, find the event on Facebook.
