Gaining STEAM: Adventures in Mapping

Most treasure hunts have one major thing in common: maps. Without a map to gives clues about a treasure’s location, the chances of stumbling upon a cache are small. A map makes finding a desired spot easier—and
a good map is a tremendous tool. Students will engage with science, technology, engineering, artistic creation, and math (STEAM) as they explore how different types of maps and mapping systems work, what types of information maps can convey, and how maps are created. The library is an excellent place to explore STEAM concepts. Engaging children in informal STEAM learning is all about building interest in how real-world things work, and the library is full of excellent resources to facilitate these types of explorations.
