Dr. Donna Governor Publishes New Book

Our very own SLRG team member Dr. Donna Governor published new book “Staging Family Science Nights” now available on the NSTA science store.  The book serves as an accessible handbook designed for helping you to create an informal learning environment that will generate enthusiasm and enjoyment of science among the entire family.  The book’s first section—“Producing the Event”—devotes eight chapters to planning, recruiting volunteers (including students), setting up, last-minute troubleshooting, and injecting pizazz. The four chapters in the second section—“On the Stage”—offer guidance and templates for activities at the novice, intermediate, and advanced levels. Activities include “Balancing Bugs,” “Bubble Olympics,” and “Creating Color Slime.”

New SLRG Publication

Congratulations to Jess McLaughlin on her poster on the use of citizen science as a way to support inclusive education in college level geoscience classes at the 130th annual Geological Society of America meeting this November. While the poster was not related to work with SLRG, we wanted to take this opportunity to highlight the disciplinary diversity of our group!
