I just received the following announcement about a training opportunity around STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programming for tween boys and girls. This is not a library specific training, but it sounds like information and resources we could use to develop tween STEM programs in the library. For more information, read the email below and visit this webpage: http://www.ngcproject.org/scigirls-professional-development-training-oregon-wilsonville.
