    Hello,

    I just wanted to share that a resource that sometimes is forgotten is the public library. Our public library in Gainesville has some STEM outreach programs that worked great when I introduced my students to 3D printing.  A public library employee brought some STEM kits that allow the students to do some coding.  While I was working with a group of students in the 3D printer room, the other students worked in three different groups with three different kits, like one that produce sound and another one to turn on a small fiber optic lamp.  It worked really well to introduce the students to STEM activities and makes classroom management easier.

    Best,

    Mayra

    • Thanks for sharing this, Mayra!

      Coincidentally, our project just visited a couple of public libraries with makerspaces in NM last week. Collaboration with libraries is a great way to extend this project!
