Make, Do, Share: Build a STEM Learning Community
April 28, 2016 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
Free webinar presenting a ready-to-use system that empowers libraries of all sizes to become community STEM leaders. Youth in grades K-12 spend 81% of their time in informal learning environments outside of school. As the number of STEM related careers continues to multiply, libraries can play a key role in fostering the interest and excitement for STEM learning that may be missing in schools. Through the generous support of a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Kitsap Regional Library System (KRL), a semi-rural library system, has developed a ready-to-use system that empowers libraries of all sizes to become community STEM leaders.
If you feel like an “accidental STEM librarian” and are wondering how to get started, KRL presenters Shannon Peterson (Youth Services Manager) and Seth Ciotti (BiblioTEC Program Manager) will share fresh ideas and hands-on, practical advice for planning and implementing impactful programs. Learn how to take the lead with informal learning for youth and families in your community. Hosted in collaboration with the Association for Rural & Small Libraries.
