NASA@ My Library is a STEM education initiative created to increase and enhance STEM learning opportunities for library patrons throughout the nation, including geographic areas and populations currently underserved in STEM education.
Seventy-five U.S. public libraries were selected through a competitive application process in May 2017 to become NASA@ My Library Partners and participate in the 18-month project (Phase 1 – May 2017-October 2018), with the opportunity to extend for an additional two-year period (Phase 2 – November 2018-December 2020).
NASA@ My Library Partners will receive materials and training to assist them in leading educational, fun STEM programming for all ages. Participating libraries will receive two NASA STEM Facilitation Kits designed for use in hands-on STEM programming; a tablet computer pre-loaded with how-to videos, apps, educational games and other materials relevant to the Facilitation Kits; an invitation to a two-day orientation workshop in Denver; programming and travel stipends; and more.
