STEAM Programming for Diverse Populations

Tuesday, June 14, 2016 - 3:00pm

 

STEAM programs that connect youth audiences to science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math—continue to be a particularly hot topic in libraries, with plenty of conference programs and online learning opportunities devoted to the concept. Yet despite the growing number of STEAM resources available, libraries may find themselves wondering:

 

  • What might STEAM programs look like particularly in libraries serving racially and ethnically diverse communities?
  • How do my staff and I offer meaningful STEAM opportunities for diverse populations without specialized training?
  • How do we help youth build strong foundations in STEAM through programs that are easily accessible and interesting to a community with a diverse population?

 

In a landscape where children of color tend to have fewer STEAM opportunities in school and extracurriculars, the library can aim to fill these gaps for their communities. This webinar will explore why it is necessary to offer STEAM programs for diverse youth and teen populations, and will include a variety of ideas for programs and resources for finding and creating your own programs.
