Looking for ways to attract new library users to your STEM programs? Join us for
tips and tricks on how to combine pop culture and maker technology into STEM skill
activities for the magical mix of exciting, trendy and educational programs that will
have a wide range of kids saying “Mom, you have to take me to the library!”.

From Minions to Dr. Who, or Shopkins to Star Wars, we’ll look at the most popular
examples from Keshen Goodman Public Library’s pop culture programming past.
We’ll discuss some great ways to inspire staff engagement, and where to find ontrend
pop culture phenomenon.

A variety of low to high budget maker materials will be presented, while discussing
how to make the most out of your supplies by revamping the same projects with
that popular new theme.

Pop culture maker programs aim to include more than just your self-proclaimed
budding scientists in their appeal, and will ideally inspire a wider range of children
to imagine what their own STEM-skilled futures might look like.
