Short Title
Bringing STEM Learning to Public Libraries
Summary

Hear examples of STEM programming in libraries, and gain access to resources available on the STAR_NET Community of Practice. 

Description

Many libraries want to introduce STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) into their programming to attract new audiences and help stimulate children’s interest in science. You will learn about the STAR Library Education Network (STAR_Net) led by the National Center for Interactive Learning (NCIL) at the Space Science Institute. STAR_Net Librarians and others who are successfully programming STEM will also share their strategies for connecting with community resources. STAR_Net is forming a Community of Practice (CoP) for librarians and scientists who want to create innovative STEM programs. Details about the STAR_Net CoP and how to join it will also be shared.
