Developed by The Franklin Institute Science Museum and supported by National Girls Collaborative Project, Leap into Science is a series of workshops that pair hands-on science activities with thematically-linked children’s books for children ages 3-10 and families.  The program is designed to take place in community settings like libraries, museums, community centers, afterschool programs, and science festivals, to engage underserved audiences in accessible and comfortable settings.

Leap into Science is scaling nationally through a train-the-trainer model.  We are looking to assemble state leadership teams consisting of 2-3 institutions who will work together to train informal educators who reach urban and rural communities in your state. Informal educators can include librarians, museum educators, afterschool program facilitators, camp counselors, outreach program leaders, and more. After being trained, these educators will lead science & literacy programs in community settings for children and families living in urban and rural areas in your state.

Join us on this webinar to learn more about this project and how to be involved.
