STEAM, a Pinterest Board

SLJ’s STEAM-themed page on Pinterest.

We’re all for hands-on learning, and libraries, both school and public, are uniquely suited to host activities around STEAM, a concept incorporating arts into STEM (science, technology, and math) that’s gaining leverage among educators.

Looking to get started? Check out School Library Journal‘s Pinterest page, curated by children’s librarian Amy Koester, author of our October 2013 cover story, “Full STEAM Ahead: Injecting Art and Creativity into STEM.”

From rubber band race cars to variations on the “Slink/Float lesson,” there’s a range of program ideas, activities, experiments, and reading suggestions. Koester, who works at the Corporate Parkway Branch of the St. Charles (MO) City-County Library District and blogs at ‘The Show Me Librarian’ will continue to pin her resource picks to the board.
