Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math Explorations in the Library: Lessons from the Math and Science Story Time (MASST) Series

Document Type


Publication Date



We will explore science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) concepts in preschool, why to include this content in library story times and programs, and how to get started. With many years of experience working with preschool teachers, families, and with libraries, Dr. Lange will demystify STEM and early STEM education.

We hope attendees will leave with inspiration to include more STEM concepts in their programming for young children in a way that builds on what children and families are already doing, and that empowers children, families, and library staff to find the STEM all around them every day. We will discuss many examples of how STEM concepts can be easily incorporated into preschool programs.
