Libraries have started moving away from being places of consumption and are becoming places of production. Libraries are about discovery; giving people a safe and comfortable place to dream, think, and create is very important because it gives people a chance to explore various technologies and educational opportunities that they can use to enrich their lives. STEAM education refers to teaching and learning, mostly hands-on, in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics. There are several ways to incorporate the STEAM educational framework into your libraries and this webinar will touch on the following and more:

  • Learn what STEAM is
  • Creating and managing a collaborative learning space, oftentimes referred to as a makerspace
  • Administering a robotics league
  • Organizing learning events
  • Partnering with businesses and other organizations
  • Assessing the success of your programs
