STEAM and what you can learn from Elon Musk

STEAM and what you can learn from Elon Musk

Back in April 2016, Elon Musk took to the stage in California to launch the third phase of his three-phase 'top secret plan' for global domination in the world of electric cars, amongst other small side projects he has on at that moment.

Within a week he had closed sales for $14 billion worth of cars of making it the biggest product launch in the history of business, eclipsing anything that Apple, the worlds biggest company also driven by STEAM powered innovation, has ever done.

Combining Science and Art

As controversial as he is today, Elon Musk is seen globally as an epitome of a STEAM powered mind that combines art and science in the second industrial revolution we are now living through, where art meets science again as it did in Leonardo's day and "creativity is as important as literacy". Fuelling innovation, for all our futures.

Musk's 25 minute performance that day and what he has accomplished since, is one of the most inspiring, engaging and informative lessons any child, parent, student, educator or business person could ever learn about the importance of STEAM.

Power of Interdisciplinary Thinking and Innovation

Musk's visionary approach to innovation and entrepreneurship serves as a beacon for aspiring young minds looking to make a mark in the world. His ability to seamlessly blend science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) has not only revolutionized industries but has also sparked a new wave of creativity and ingenuity.

But what sets Elon Musk apart? It's not just his technical prowess or business acumen; it's his relentless pursuit of pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo. From founding companies like SpaceX, Tesla, and Neuralink to spearheading projects like the Hyperloop and X, Musk's ventures are testament to the power of interdisciplinary thinking and innovation.
