What is your wish for this project?
We hope to increase the interest in our youth in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math careers and also to give them some core knowledge of key concepts in these areas to increase their achievement in school. Also, we will be providing guidance on how to use library resources.
How did it go?
We gathered all of the available information on school locations, libraries, public buildings, and then proceeded to map out where area resources were located. We also surveyed the population by race and age so we knew where various students would be located. In this way we knew that the public library was the best place to hold our STEM classes. It also was the best location to our target audience, the Latino population, who live closest to the downtown library.
