Keene Public Library will partner with Keene State College to deliver STEM and making learning experiences for young children ages 2-6 to foster science process skills acquisition, as well as provide training and resources that equip librarians and educators to offer high-quality science instruction and facilitation for young children and their families. The work will result in a model of family engagement focused on STEM and making activities; a research-based effective practices framework for developing STEM and making experiences for very young children in libraries; and resources for librarians and educators, including a facilitator guide, professional development at conferences, and evidence-based case studies of family participation and library facilitation.
