The National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) will host its annual conference in St. Louis on April 11-14 and there are many ways for attendees – and everyone – to learn more about what the Library of Congress offers to science teachers.
Join the LC Learning and Innovation Office staff for a workshop at the NSTA Area Conference 11/16/18 from 12:30 p.m.- 1:30 p.m. If you’re unable to join us at NSTA in November, you can still browse the many teaching resources available online related to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics.
Talking with science teachers at the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) conference last month reminded me that a couple of years ago the Library of Congress hosted a Teacher in Residence with a background in science.
We know that many teachers are looking for materials relating to current scientific issues, and we’ve found amazing resources on current issues in science in an unexpected place: Congress.gov.
I also work in the Library of Congress Young Readers Center (YRC) on a part-time basis. We welcome children and families who are visiting the Library, as well as groups of K-12 students, and assist them in using our diverse collection of nearly 7,000 books for young people. I assist in coordinating special events for kids, including children’s author talks, many of which are now live streamed and accessible to students anywhere.
