    In addition to the STARNET activities, the Explore program has online information, book lists, and news for libraries interested in incorporating STEM into their programs: http://www.lpi.usra.edu/education/explore/stem/

    Book lists, information, and other resources for libraries are available within each topic, under "Hands-on Activities."
