This panel seeks to introduce attendees to various resources and outreach availble across North Carolina. Lisa Tolley will discuss how to take advantage of the Environmental Education Certification Program which aims to increase environmental literacy, provide practice in environmental education teaching methods and foster community leadership. Jason Diem will discuss the North Carolina Department of Natural and Cultural Resources (DNCR) free educational traveling exhibits with STEM content to spark curiosity in library patrons. These exhibits are a great way to both add value to a library visit and used as a start for further STEM programming. Marcus Harshaw from the Kaleideum in Winston-Salem is going to discuss how the Kaleideum can offer libraries STEM programs that have dual benefits by extending Kaleideum’s reach in our shared community and by complementing what libraries offer through an interactive and engaging partnership. Martha Fisk from the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences in Raleigh will discuss the museum's variety of programs and activities to engage audiences of all ages and abilities, and Outreach programs that provide experiences that spark curiosity -- all in support of the museum's mission to illuminate the natural world and inspire its conservation.
