Story Time Slime at SDLA/NDLA/MPLA Tri-Conference
If you haven’t heard about the amazing opportunity that is awaiting you at the SDLA/NDLA/MPLA Tri-Conference this year, you are in for a surprise! As a pre-conference, the folks from Steve Spangler Science will be bringing their fantastic program to Sioux Falls to teach librarians how to integrate more science into their programming. For more information about the types of activities you might be learning, visit their website at Steve Spangler Science. Steve is a frequent guest on the Ellen Show, so you can imagine just how much fun this is. Take a look: Ellen Show (via YouTube).
