Leap Into Science training hosted by the Wyoming Afterschool Alliance will be held on Tuesday, October 1, 2019 from 12:30-4:30 at Little America in Cheyenne. This event is a pre-conference for the 11th Annual WYAA State Conference on Afterschool Programs.
Get involved with Wyoming’s newest science endeavor! Leap into Science is a nationwide program developed by The Franklin Institute Science Museum with the National Girls Collaborative Project that integrates open-ended science activities with children’s books, designed for children ages 3-10 and their families. The program empowers educators to offer workshops in community settings like libraries, museums, and out-of-school time programs to engage underserved audiences in accessible and familiar settings.
Educators are invited to bring an exciting curriculum into your programs! Using the Wind Curriculum as a platform, attendees will be introduced to the full Leap Into Science ecosystem. Attendees will receive $250.00 worth of materials and books -- most materials are reusable, except for some cheap refills like straws, pencils, paper, sticks. Upon successful completion of the training, participants will be part of the National Girls Collaborative Project and connected to The Connectory for resources and tracking trainings. They will also be on a private Facebook page for Leap educators.
Wyoming’s leadership team includes WYAA Director Linda Barton, along with Wyoming State Library School Library Consultant Paige Bredenkamp and Wyoming Alliance for Environmental Education Executive Director Susan McGuire.
