With a “Fizz, Boom, READ!” theme for the 2014 Collaborative Summer Reading Program and a steady rise in school STEM programs, now is the pefect time to increase summer science activities in public libraries. Learn how one library has expanded a traditional Summer Reading Program to include multiple science components. Our easily adaptable model includes a Science Log to encourage home science activities, a Preschool Stories and Science series, and Tabletop Science in the Children’s Room. Adapt for your library using free downloadable resources provided in an online Summer Science Toolkit.
Learning Outcomes

Learners will:
  • Learn how to incorporate a Science Log into any existing Summer Reading Program with minimal fuss and expense. 
  • Learn about other ways to infuse science into Summer Reading Programs, including Preschool Stories and Science sessions, Tabletop Activities, and Science Classes. These optional activities support and build upon the core Science Log piece. 
  • See examples from an online Summer Science Toolkit of resources for developing programs and activities, including Science Logs, Preschool Stories and Science curricula, and Tabletop Activity resources. The Toolkit is reproducible and may be adapted by libraries at no cost.
