STEM Collaborations: Partnering with Your Science Teachers


Being at a STEM magnet school, I’ve always strived to bring STEM into our library.  In my recent article for the ISTE Librarians Network newsletter, The Scanner, I go into detail about how I’ve collaborated with our science teachers and created a STEM learning environment in our library.  Check out the article here.
