NNLM All of Us and SciStarter Partnership Featured in Discover Magazine
Discover Magazine recently featured a new collaborative effort between the NNLM All of Us Research Program and SciStarter that aims to bring virtual citizen science and health programming to libraries this summer. The new effort, called “Summer Reading Meets Citizen Science” builds off the Collaborative Summer Reading Program (CSLP) 2020, “Imagine Your Story” led by NNLM All of Us Research Program.
The new citizen science summer reading webinar series is designed to keep students and adults engaged with reading and research to prevent “summer slide” learning loss. The series, which will take place throughout the month of August, will feature virtual citizen science initiatives at libraries across the country and connect participants with NLM featured projects at www.scistarter.org/NLM.
This new collaboration between the NNLM All of Us Research Program and SciStarter is part of an expanding partnership between NNLM and SciStarter, who worked together to support Citizen Science Month (April 2020) in libraries.
