Make, Do, Share: Build a STEM Learning Community
Thursday, April 28, 2016 / 12 pm Pacific / 1 hour
Registration: http://www.webjunction.org/events/webjunction/make-do-share.html

Youth in grades K-12 spend an astounding 81% of their time in informal learning environments outside of school. Libraries are a locus of informal learning. As the number of STEM related careers continues to multiply, libraries can play a key role in fostering the interest and excitement for STEM learning that may be missing in schools. Through the generous support of a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, Kitsap Regional Library System (KRL) has developed a ready-to-use system that empowers libraries of all sizes to become community STEM leaders. If you feel like an "accidental STEM librarian" and are wondering how to get started, staff at this semi-rural library system will share fresh ideas and hands-on, practical advice for planning and implementing impactful programs. Learn how to take the lead with informal learning for youth and families in your community.

Presenters: From Kitsap Regional Library<http://www.krl.org/>, Shannon Peterson, Youth Services Manager and Seth Ciotti, BiblioTEC Program Manager

This webinar is hosted in collaboration with the Association for Rural & Small Libraries<http://arsl.info/>.
