What we're about

We are people interested in STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math) topics and how these intersect with society, culture and startups. This group is co-managed by organizers from Space Cafe Tokyo and Nerd Nite Tokyo, which each have monthly events. Other organizers and ideas are welcome -- get in touch!
