Know & Go: STEAM clubs

Course Description

The increasing drive for STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) education has worked its way into libraries. One effective way that preschool, school aged and college students, and adults alike are engaging in STEAM education is through clubs hosted at the library.
