“STEM and Makerspaces,” a lively discussion presented by McGraw-Hill’s own John Rennie, recipient of the Carl Sagan Award for Public Understanding of Science and Editorial Director for AccessScience. Stop by booth #1709 to hear John discuss the latest trends shaping science learning and community needs, covering everything from makerspaces to black holes. Listen to John’s latest podcast on Trends in STEM.
Hearing from YOU! There’s a lot to talk about when it comes to what’s changing in the world of libraries. Share what you see and what you think with our library community and we will give you one of 20 makerspace starter kits which include a copy of The Maker Movement Manifesto signed by author and makerspace super guru Mark Hatch; a Kindle Paperwhite; and a $50 VISA gift card.
A dashing FREE tote! Everything else aside…a stylish red McGraw-Hill Education tote makes the perfect re-gift at grab bag time. Everyone who stops by gets one (until they are all gone)!
