HOLLAND, Ohio, Nov. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- On National STEAM Day (November 8th), hoopla digital (hoopladigital.com), the category-creating mobile and online service for public libraries, invites readers to explore STEAM education and top titles to inspire curiosity in science, technology, engineering, the arts and mathematics. hoopla digital’s National STEAM Day Reading List – selected for learners of all ages – highlights a dozen titles from the largest and most diverse collection of STEAM content for public libraries. The 2019 list includes favorites from educators Bryce Sizemore and Mitchel Meighen; along with other top hoopla titles.

“Reading is a fundamental building block for STEAM education. Our library and education partners often share how just one title can inspire a lifetime of wonder in science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics,” said hoopla digital co-founder and owner Jeff Jankowski. “This year’s reading list celebrates that curiosity, with a mix of titles handpicked by Bryce and Mitchel; along with other favorites from hoopla’s STEAM collection.”

National STEAM Day encourages students of all ages to explore and pursue their interests in STEAM. According to U.S. Labor Department, of the 10 fastest growing occupations, nearly all of them are STEAM careers. A STEAM education is vital for non-STEAM related jobs and for adults continuing education too – as it encourages critical thinking and a better understanding of the world. The hoopla National STEAM Day Reading List is intended to serve as a catalyst for deeper discovery into STEAM education.

“If you’re just getting started with STEAM, hoopla has such a diverse variety of STEAM resources – whether you want a book targeted directly for STEAM education, a book about inventors, or a book that can be used to create a STEAM challenge, it’s on hoopla!,” said Bryce Sizemore, a Dallas-based elementary educator who will a National STEAM Day takeover on hoopla’s Instagram on Nov. 7 at 8 p.m. EST.

“I used hoopla digital in my classroom last year, and I was excited to learn throughout the summer how they were improving the STEAM titles available to users,” said Mitchel Meighen, a Chicago-based educator. “I know from experience how difficult it can be to integrate relevant, non-fiction works and diverse literature into the classroom and at home. The reading list is a great introduction for learners to explore hoopla.”
