Since the start of 2014, the staff at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library's Children's Room have been doing a program called STEAM Team. STEAM is an acronym standing for Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Mathematics. It highlights a trend in education where students focus on these subjects through enriching activities, which is what the Children's Room's STEAM Team program hopes to accomplish. STEAM in its various forms is also the focus of the DC Public Library's Summer Reading program this year.
