Poster #15 -- Libraries as STEM Education Hubs: Engaging Your Patrons through the North Carolina Science Festival

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
The North Carolina Science Festival is a statewide, month-long celebration of STEM that takes place every April. Each year, we work with partners at museums, parks, libraries, schools, and more to host hundreds of events that allow the people of North Carolina to engage with STEM topics.

As hosts of 73 Festival events in 2019, libraries are a key group of partners that bring STEM learning into their communities. This poster will examine some of the existing programs that our library partners have hosted, including our Statewide Star Party (at 17 libraries this year) and offer key takeaways for developing a unique STEM event for any audience at your library. This will include best practices for running science events, resources for expanding your collection of activities, and generalized advice for your STEM programming efforts.
