Meaningful Making: Bridging STEM & Teen Programming

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Libraries are striving to provide teens with programming opportunities that allow them to learn & collaborate with peers. One facet of programming that libraries are implementing are STEM Maker activities. We have developed a set of easy to follow program guides freely available online to support librarians to implement these activities. In this workshop, attendees will participate in Maker activities and experience fun & cost-effective possibilities for STEM-oriented Making in the library.
