Please Join Us on Monday, March 3, 2014 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Click here to RSVP by February 11, 2014. Space is limited.
The workshop, part of our IMLS Early Learners Collaborative, features:
Bootheel Youth Museum, Malden, MO, sharing “Head Start to the Theater” which harnesses preschoolers’ natural star power and helps wallflowers bloom. Children learn confidence, teamwork, and memory skills.
Discovery Center of Springfield, Springfield, MO, sharing hands-on, inquiry-based science programming for 4-year-olds called “Science Sprouts Outreach.” Childcare facilities that serve mainly low-income families are the primary recipients of the program, which also incorporates literacy.
Koch Family Children’s Museum, Evansville, IN, sharing “Show and Tell, Touch, Taste and Smell,” a sensory learning experience for children ages 2-5. Participants explore the senses through hands-on play, dramatic play, textural games, scientific experiments, literature, animation, cooking, and sniff and tell activities.
Scitech, Aurora, IL, sharing “SciTech STEM for Early Learners,” hands-on science experiments and activities offered both in the museum and their onsite preschool, especially focused on preschoolers ages 3-6.
