Title:STEAM: Science and Art Meet in Rural Library Makerspaces
Author(s):Barniskis, Shannon Crawford
Subject(s):makerspaces

access

Abstract:Public libraries around the world are adding collaborative creative spaces, often known as makerspaces, which facilitate hands-on activities with digital and electronic tools such as 3D printers and soldering irons, as well as more traditional tools, such as sewing machines and wood working materials. Many makerspaces incorporate art with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to create a STEAM-charged participatory culture that encourages people who were not previously inclined to code or solder to interact with science and technology in ways they had not before. This poster synthesizes three qualitative studies, one of which is ongoing, using grounded theory methods to build a picture of makerspaces in rural public libraries from the perspective of the users and librarians.
