Welcome to the STAR Library Network’s NASA STEM Workshop page! We are thrilled that you are either attending a NASA STEM Workshop with facilitators from the Space Science Institute and/or the Lunar and Planetary Institute, or that you are using our materials to host your own STEM training. The 2019 Summer Reading theme, “A Universe of Stories”, is a tremendous opportunity for libraries to bring Space Science and STEM Education into every community, and we hope that these resources help you achieve your summer programming goals. Our goals for our NASA STEM Workshops are for participants to:
- Gain confidence in facilitating hands-on space science activities for ages 5-13 and their families at their libraries.
- Gain confidence in making connections to current NASA science and missions with NASA apps, video clips, images, and other educational and promotional resources.
- Network with others involved in facilitating innovative science and technology programs.
- Connect to a broader online community of practice through the STAR Library Network (STAR Net).
In case you missed it, below is the orientation webinar that we hosted on January 23rd to introduce STEM Workshop attendees to numerous resources from our STAR Library Network (STAR Net) website. Note: Many of these same resources can be accessed on the bottom of this page as well.
