Bringing the Stories of the Skies to Your Library
The 2020 Collaborative Summer Library Program, Imagine Your Story, provides plenty of opportunities to tie STEAM into your library’s summer programming, including any virtual or digital programs that your library may now be offering. The starry skies have plenty of fascinating stories to tell; all you need are resources and strategies for bringing them to life!
Join STAR Net, Christine Shupla (Lunar and Planetary Institute), and Elizabeth Nicolai (Anchorage Public Library) for this 1-hour webinar that will help you connect constellation legends and myths into your programs by learning about the stories – both fact and fiction! – of specific astronomical objects, constellations, and planetary bodies. We will also cover hands-on activities that your patrons can do at home and online platforms and digital resources that you can utilize to conduct virtual programs. This webinar will conclude with a group discussion (via chat) about how your library is pivoting for their summer STEAM programming.
