Lake Mac STEAM Week

About STEAM week


13- 21 August 2022

Lake Mac STEAM is a week-long program of inspiring learning experiences that are centered around Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Maths that is held every year in conjunction with National Science Week.

The theme for National Science Week in 2022 is Glass: More than meets the eye. It is based on the UN International Year of Glass. It will celebrate the many roles that glass plays in our lives – from phone screens to optical fibre to glassware in labs – plus investigating glass as a part of our sustainable future. The uses for and intrinsic nature of glass in science make it a suitable topic for investigation across all strands of science education.

Lake Mac Libraries celebrate and promote creativity, innovation and uniqueness through engaging events, festivals, exhibitions and programs for our community and visitors alike. We actively encourage creative learning and experiences and recognise the importance of STEAM education and its ability to address common issues on a local and global scale. We are a member of HISH (Hunter Innovation and Science Hub) and we run a variety of STEAM activities and workshops in our libraries, our performing arts venues and museums throughout the year.
