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.

If You Publish Linked Data, Will they Come? Program Moscone Convention Center
2003 (W)
Description :

Previous presentations on linked data have promoted the attitude of "if you publish it, they will come." How do we know our linked data is being used by others? How do we justify the effort spent to create the linked data? How are institutions publishing linked data evaluating the use of their data, specifically use by non-library entities? Panelists from institutions currently publishing linked data will attempt to answer these questions and provide insight into how they are defining the value of publishing linked data.
