A really great science booth at the Ridgedale Library in Minnetonka
One more time-sensitive thing to mention about upcoming dates:
Get your science geek on and participate in the Wisconsin Science Festival – right in your library!The Wisconsin Science Festival “Curiosity Unleashed. Innovate 2012” will take place in Madison, September 27-30, 2012, but you don’t have to come to Madison to share the wonders of modern science. How about putting up a book display with a science festival sign and bookmarks during the festival?
The Science Festival will provide you with the materials, and they’ve also created a bibliography of science-related books you may want to display (thanks to Karen Dunn, UW-Madison Steenbock Library for fine tuning!):
To participate, contact Ann Feist, Event Coordinator, Wisconsin Alumni Research Foundation, at firstname.lastname@example.org. To be listed in the festival’s print program, please contact Ann by next Wednesday, September 12.
Remember, IFLS has a Science kit you can borrow, with a microscope, magnets, and other fun things to experiment with. Contact Leah if you want to borrow it! (langby @ ifls.lib.wi.us) Other ideas for science programs:
