Adult STEAM programming recognizes that adult life-long learners also benefit from an increased interest and discovery of STEAM topics which can empower to them to think creatively and to design and engineer solutions to real world problems. With this goal in mind the Catawba County Library has established a year-long series of community driven STEAM programs for Adults. During this session, we will share the inspiration for Adult Steam programs, how to get started, find community partners, funding ideas, and program evaluation. Participants will also learn how to transform popular DIY craft programs into Adult STEAM programs.
