star We did it! on April 24 star
The AZ YA Summit will provide opportunities for Arizona’s library professionals that serve teens, to network with each other and learn from experts. Through a collaboration with the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records and the Arizona Library Association, the AZ YA Summit will connect and enlighten library staff in public and school libraries on best practices for meaningfully engaging teens. Our objective is that library staff will feel supported in the important work they do and through continuing education, library staff will be positioned to support teens to develop 21st Century Skills and transition to adulthood. One of these opportunities to serve teens is through the circulation of Citizen Science Library Kits! Emma, a SciStarter representative, will be presenting on citizen science and the SciStarter library kit program on Thursday, April 6th, at 12:30pm. Following the presentation, attendees will have the chance to try out the kits for themselves and accelerate scientific research by submitting data before the next session!
