  1. The Science-Technology-Engineering-Math (STEM) robot feels like he is missing something. Here comes Dr. Dino to adjust his settings! Guess what? STEM education, which is missing the "A" of "arts," puts you in a sad headbox of narrow-minded thinking. Luckily, here comes Professor Turnip and TA Impossible to remind us why art is important. They are NOT LECTURING. They are speaking truth to power. Think about art. Look at it. Stop being a STEM robot. The end.

  2. The Science-Technology-Engineering-Math (STEM) robot feels like he is missing something. Here comes Dr. Dino to adjust his settings! Guess what? STEM education, which is missing the "A" of "arts," puts you in a sad headbox of narrow-minded thinking. STEM education needs “A,” arts, to make it “STEAM,” which takes us forward, not just up. Luckily, here comes Professor Turnip and TA Impossible to remind us why art is important. They are NOT LECTURING. They are speaking truth to power. Think about art. Look at it. Stop being a STEM robot. Be a STEAM philosopher. The end.

  3. Circles in squares. You put me in a box. Hey, wait a second, there is a box in a circle. I took off my box head and put it around Picasso’s circles, and now I’m Being! See? It might not be perfect, square-peg-in-round-hole, but it’s not impossible. (All thanks to radish lady!)

  4. We are not robots! See how sad STEMbot multiple choice makes us? Dinosaur teacher says, "let the robot grade it!"

    But wait!!!

    Why not question the answers?, says the Socratic radish lady, her finger pointing toward a sky of possibility.

    Yeah, ‘questioning is the piety of thought’, says professor im-possible.

    Off with your (ro-box)head, kid!, says the body poet.

    Look now! No circles to fill, nothing boxing us in. Art and life and movement–mind in body–where will this take us?

    im-possible… We’re bringing BEING back.
