How Makerspaces and DIY Science Can Promote STEM Learning at Every Age Author Event, Exhibitor session Moscone Convention Center
124 (N)
Description :

Long before atom-smashers and deep-space probes, there were no separate classes of people labeled scientists or inventors. Fundamental breakthroughs in science and technology were made by ordinary people who felt a passion to explore, build, and create with the tools at hand. Today, the economic importance of STEM is greater than ever, and devices like 3D printers and rich sources of scientific understanding online can empower individuals to new success—if they are properly motivated to engage with STEM subjects and if they have access to those resources. The role that libraries can play in making those connections has therefore never been more crucial.

John Rennie, editorial director of MHE’s AccessScience, will lead this panel of Makerspace innovators and leading librarians. They will discuss the best practices for libraries that want to encourage hands-on exploration and curiosity-driven learning of STEM subjects, with case studies from successful programs across a wide range of ages. They will also look at exciting new information resources that can help libraries and their users develop the knowledge and skills to participate effectively in a Maker-friendly world.

130 (N)
Description :

Libraries and Museums have so much in common! We’re both cultural institutions that promote lifetime learning, encourage civic engagement, and connect people to ideas. So why not learn from each other?

Join Librarians Rebecca Hopman of the The Rakow Research Library at the Corning Museum of Glass, Kara West of the San Diego Public Library, and Erinn Paige of New Canaan Library for an exciting look at how each of these places—a research library, a large urban library, and a small municipal library—are working to bridge the gap between museum and library service to support the creative life of their communities.

We’ll share examples of successful spaces, partnerships, and programs from each of these libraries that are practical and scalable, so you can transform your library into an incubator for the arts!
