STEM/STEAM Series: Viewpoints How School Libraries Support

Provide Informational Pathways for Developing Science Career Interests 


School libraries are positioned to become essential partners with the STEM/STEAM movement. Some of us are ready to step up and contribute with our services, skills and knowledge to help increase the number of students interested in STEM/STEAM. 

In order to motivate people participating in STEM, teacher librarians advocate, provide materials, and open library spaces to accommodate student/staff needs.  We also can organize informational pathways to guide students inquiring about various topics encouraging them to discover careers in STEM/STEAM.  

There are places to learn more about STEM information at the national, state, and local levels.
