Description

Let's play with STEM & STEAM! Oh no. Did that first sentence make you groan because you don't think you like Science, Technology, Engineering and Math? Join us for this amazing program. You'll be inspired to try STEM programming in your own library even if you don't have all of Newton's Laws memorized and have forgotten how to calculate the area of a circle.

Most STEM or STEAM programs offered at libraries are aimed at school-aged participants. In 2012, Carissa Christner of the Madison Public Library set out to create a program for 3-4 year olds that encouraged play-based STEM explorations. Find out more about this program (called WonderWorks) and the lessons Carissa learned along the way in this one-hour webinar.

We’ll even provide marketing strategies and Readers’ Advisory materials to help you cross promote your collections and reach your community!
