2:00–3:00 p.m. ET
Early childhood museum educators strive to offer parents what they need to continue open-ended science learning at home. In this webinar, presenters will share examples of modeling “inquiry behavior” at small and large museums in exhibits, parent/child activities, and through online resources. Learn about “Play Coach,” an educator-led program at Imagine Children’s Museum in Everett, Washington, that engages families in inquiry activities that they can recreate at home, and about Boston Children’s Museum’s preschool STEM exhibit, PEEP’s World.
Teddy Dillingham (Imagine Children’s Museum), Cora Carey (Boston Children’s Museum), and Gay Mohrbacher (WGBH, Boston’s PBS station) will share their experiences and insights. Facilitated by Ellen Blinderman from the Lawrence Hall of Science, Berkeley, California, and Jennifer Jovanovic from GrowingGreat in Los Angeles, this webinar will be participatory, so come prepared to share ideas and be inspired by fellow participants. This webinar is presented by ASTC’s Early Childhood Community of Practice.
