SESSION 307 - It STEMs from Us: Engaging in Archival Outreach with Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Students

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Is there a place for archives in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) education?  A panel of archivists and special collections librarians tackle this question and offer four examples of creative and instructive approaches in archival outreach to STEM students and educators.  The panelists share their experiences in K-12, university, and museum settings, and encourage a conversation among archivists, special collections librarians, and educators who are actively working to better serve STEM communities.
