Howest, through STEAMhive, plays a pivotal role in the field of STEM in leisure activities. Within STEAMhive III, Howest provides support to organisations aiming to establish extracurricular STEM activities from the Mind- and Makerspace and The Enterprise.

The mission is to transform STEAM in leisure time into a full-fledged hobby, to innovate and make STEM academies more accessible, thereby contributing to the goals of the STEM agenda 2030.
