STEAM subjects are exciting and have great potential to captivate young children. When you expose them to science and math at an early age you are building their confidence, and unleashing their potential.

Librarians and early childhood educators can step in to make STEM learning (a national priority) more playful, fun and hands-on. Webinar attendees will learn innovative, playful ways to support Early Literacy and STEAM through programs, services, collections, and spaces.
