The Kokomo-Howard County Public Library is proud to be one of only eight libraries in the country — and the only Indiana library — to host the Discover Tech: Engineers Make a World of Difference traveling exhibit.

Discover Tech will help students understand the nature of 21st-century technology and engineering. Through interactive displays, the exhibit will illustrate that engineers, through a creative and collaborative design process, arrive at practical solutions to help solve the world’s problems.

KHCPL invites teachers and schools to use Discover Tech to spark students’ interest in science and to supplement STEM-related curriculum. We will host school visits on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Fridays during our three-month exhibition period. The exhibition begins Feb. 25, 2017, and ends May 19, 2017. We welcome questions and are available to present more exhibition information to schools, upon request.

Exhibit partners include the Lunar and Planetary Institute, the National Girls Collaborative Project, and the American Library Association. Discover Tech is supported through a grant from the National Science Foundation.Locally, Discover Tech is made possible by a grant from the Community Foundation of Howard County, a donation from the Friends of the Kokomo-Howard County Public Library, Delphi Electronics & Safety, and KHCPL.
