The Library of Congress will be hosting a series of three STEM-related webinars for educators this Spring. The series will be facilitated by our 2021-2022 Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellows, Lesley Anderson and Peter DeCraene and will take place at 7 pm ET April 28, May 5, and May 12.

Registration is open for the first in the series that will take place on April 28th on Analyzing Primary Sources with a STEM Lens. This interactive session will focus on the foundational primary source analysis process and its application in K-12 STEM classrooms. We’ll demonstrate how using primary sources can facilitate engagement as well as provide an opportunity for participants to explore the free resources available on the Library’s Teachers’ page and reflect on using primary sources in their classrooms.

We will examine a 19th century wood engraving from the Tissandier Collection and discuss its connections to physical and life science concepts. We will also practice a primary source analysis on historical graphs that connect math across the curriculum.

Join us and see what else the Library can offer STEM teachers!
