The Alaska State Library in partnership with the Loussac Library has been selected as one of 10 State Library Agencies to work with NASA@ My Library team members to bring a hands-on, space science themed workshop to a group of Alaska public library staff.

A 1.5 day NASA STEM Workshop  will be held at the Loussac Library in Anchorage on April 12-13, 2019.   The 1st day of the workshop will begin at 1 pm and conclude at 5 pm. The 2nd day will begin at 9 am and will conclude at 3:00 pm.

The workshop facilitators Keliann LaConte, Professional Development Manager, STAR Net/Space Science Institute and Brooks Mitchell, Education Coordinator, STAR Net/Space Science Institute have years of experience in providing NASA and NSF supported workshop for public library staff.

During the workshop participants will:

  1. Gain confidence in facilitating hands-on space science activities for ages 5-13 and their families at libraries
  2. Gain confidence in making connections to current NASA science and mission with NASA apps, video clips, images, and other education and promotional resources.
  3. Network with others involved in facilitating innovative science and technology programs
  4. Connect to a broader online community of practice through the STAR Library Network (STAR Net).
