Ready, Set, Create! How Engineers and Libraries Can Collaborate to Make a World of Difference

From the sidewalks that we walk on to the buildings that we work in, engineering is all around us. Libraries are a wonderful place for patrons to learn about engineering due to their inclusive nature, inquisitive staff, and informal atmosphere. Join the STAR Library Network as we go over resources, hands-on activities, and lessons-learned from Project BUILD, a collaborative project between STAR Net, the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), and the University of Virginia (UVA).

Watch Recorded Webinar

Dream–Build–Create Engineering Program

This inspirational program offered libraries and their patrons a free film screening of “Dream Big: Engineering Our World” and live access to several virtual panels with Dream Teams of young, diverse engineers.

Check out these video recordings of the virtual panels from Fall 2020!
