Participants will be recruited from rural areas in the states of Georgia, Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, New York, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana. The program will increase the knowledge, skills and abilities of participants for facilitating STEM learning within their respective school libraries. The modules developed through this project will be widely disseminated and will provide a model for teaching school librarians how to support STEM teaching and learning.
