Science Museum Hosts Training for Librarians
"Hands-On, Minds-On" was the watchword for librarians who gathered at the Boston Museum of Science to receive training for the MBLC's Science Reference Kit Mini-Grant Program. The mini-grant program was developed as a follow-up to the MBLC's successful year-long Science Reference Institute. It provided LSCA funds to 10 public libraries to update their science collection and conduct hands-on science programming.2
TODAY: The MBLC offers Full STEAM Ahead LSTA grants to support Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM) programming in public libraries. It also offers Science is Everywhere grants to support STEAM program in public and school libraries.
