Engineers Week (February 21-27, 2021) is a time to celebrate their important work and engage the next generation of innovators. Even with social distancing, you can make a difference.

During this week, your library will have the opportunity to:

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).

Guide on the Side Facilitation

Hands-on engineering activities can intrinsically help library patrons learn as they design, build, test, and try again; but how you facilitate these activities is just as important as the activities themselves!

For guidance on facilitating learning experiences for your patrons, check our Guide on the Side webpage for helpful resources or watch the webinar, STEAM Learning in Public Libraries: A “Guide on the Side” Approach for Inclusive Learning.
