OLA's Children's Services Division is in the process of forming a STEM committee.

Here's some basic information:
Objective: To provide Oregon libraries with resources, ideas, and training to integrate science, technology, engineering and mathematics into youth library programs from storytime upward.

  *   Many libraries are already using STEM programming. This committee will look for ways gather and distribute these resources and ideas to libraries across the state.
  *   Choose and schedule training workshops for library staff by a science vendor, or STEM expert, to be paid for by OLA CSD, and offered at a low cost, or no cost to staff.
  *   The STEM Programming Committee will meet via email for the foreseeable future.

If you are interested in taking part in this group, please let me know!
