Exploring Scientists at Work: #AASL13

I have been fascinated reading nonfiction books that delve into scientists' work in the field. When I was in junior high and high school, I never really saw how the science we were learning connected to unsolved mysteries. Today's kids have a wealth of interesting books that help bridge this gap -- a great alternative to deathly dry textbooks.

Come hear a conversation with some of the top science writers, editors and teachers at the AASL 2013 National Conference:
Exploring Scientists at Work
Concurrent session at #AASL13
Friday, November 15th
1:00 - 2:15 pm
Join authors, a science teacher, and an editor to discuss how stories about scientists at work can meet the needs of children, librarians, and teachers, with a special emphasis on meeting the new Common Core standards. Come prepared to share your own ideas too!

Learn how kids can explore real scientists at work. Just take a look at this fantastic line up:
