Awakening Curiosity, Enriching Lives
Cornerstones of Science acts as a catalyst, linking public libraries with scientists to bring science alive in communities. Its programs and resources help people gain direct experiences of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). With support from Cornerstones, libraries transform into community science centers where people can enjoy thought-provoking activities that expand their perspectives and improve their lives.
Cornerstones of Science provides libraries with the tools and support they need to engage people in experiential learning, reawakening a sense of wonder about the natural and physical world. Public libraries are becoming community science centers where people can gather informally and expand their understanding of STEM. Cornerstones helps public libraries access scientific resources, tools and training and make and sustain connections to scientific organizations, institutions and services in their communities and statewide.
