Teen STEAM Cafe with Ypsilanti District Library
with Ashley Jackson, University of Michigan School of Education
and Kelly Scott, Ypsilanti District Library Downtown Branch
This project is a partnership with the Ypsilanti Public Library Downtown Branch to create the Teen STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) Cafe discussion series program. Teen STEAM Cafe will be a monthly meeting where the library hosts community speakers who work in STEM field careers. Guest speakers will discuss their work, how they came to be in that career, and host activities related to their career with teens. In collaboration with the library’s Teen Advisory Group, Teen STEAM will offer access to opportunities to learn about and create media projects through experimentation and professional guidance. This project aims to support innovative teen-driven and teen-led program design at the Ypsilanti District Library.
This project is funded in par through the University of Michigan Rackham Public Scholarship Program.
