Have you ever thought…
“I wish I could reach a wider community.”
“I wish I could get some help promoting my programs.”
“I wish people would check out these great nonfiction titles.”
“I wish someone would give me a cool t-shirt.”
Stop wishing and do something about it! Participate in the Wisconsin Science Festival and reach a wider community, benefit from state-wide promotion, and increase interest in your 500’s! Oh, and yes, you can get a shirt, too!
Participation is easy: just do an event that fits your comfort level. A great way to start out is to offer a science program from a performer or local expert. In Pewaukee, we’ve grown our offerings to include “Hands-On” science in the morning, a special program in the afternoon, and, because we have an active astronomy club, a star-gazing event in the evening. Do what you can afford in staff time and programming money. You may even want to consider “killing off” your Halloween program and doing SCIENCE instead!
