The Library has made STEM education a major component of its current strategic plan. Local school systems are increasingly promoting and encouraging education within STEM fields to ensure that local children are prepared for the future. As an organization that serves as a gatekeeper to high-quality information and one of the intellectual and educational cornerstones of our community, the Library has made assisting with these endeavors a priority.
Neuse Regional Library is committed to supporting STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education. STEM programming consists of a homework help component as well as general interactive STEM programming for participants and provide access to technology in order to help eliminate “homework gap” barriers. Furthermore, the program incorporates diverse guest speakers to help students experience people who are reflections of themselves in an array of careers, breaking barriers and opening students’ eyes to future possibilities.
STEM Programming includes a number of interactive activities that give participants the opportunity to learn more about STEM topics in a hands-on manner, including:
-Guest Speakers from STEM Fields
-Math and Engineering Activities
