Cultivate Wonder

Exploring Science with Children


steamscientistsRobin L. Gibson and Jen Thomas are Youth Librarians at the Westerville Public Library in Ohio. We developed Wonderworks, a preschool STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) storytime beginning in the Fall of 2012.  We’re always looking for new ideas and encourage others to try adding a little science to storytimes!

For more about how we present Wonderworks, you can view our prezi.

 The title of this blog recalls two favorite books, Rachel Carson’s The Sense of Wonder and Katherine Paterson’s A Sense of Wonder: On Reading and Writing Books for Children.
