Full STEAM Ahead is an integrated science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM) program that champions the development of personal traits and work habits in children and adults that are essential to a productive lifestyle, as well as crucial for successful STEM careers.

Full STEAM Ahead expands upon our previous experiences with pre-K science and middle-school STEAM activities and seeks to engage those aged pre-K through to adulthood.

The Library is working with a number of partners, such as Los Angeles Makerspace, Iridescent, Nine Dots, and The Exploratory, to teach ongoing multi-session and stand-alone workshops for children, teens, and adults in areas such as computer programming, electronics/robotics, 3D modeling/printing, e-textiles, desktop animation, filmmaking, LEGO engineering, and Citizen Science. Please check here to see the most current programs and resources that are available at libraries throughout the city.
