Our team frequently works with libraries and bookstores to encourage children to become literate with reading, writing, and technology. Some such programs include:
Riley the Robot Book Project: We are in process of developing a set of children’s book about Riley Robot and his adventures in space for presentation to primary schools and family groups. It is our hope to use this project to show both the joys of robots and reading.
Reading Rendezvous: Did you know that 60% of students lose school skills during the summer? The Anchorage Public Library has a mission to change that by encouraging youth participation in libraries over the summer. They kick this summer campaign off each year with the a massive fair-like celebration with the ZJ Loussac Library. Our team provides activities, access to our children’s book, and robot demos.
Barnes and Noble Events: We take advantage of as many Barnes and Noble events as possible, including read alouds and their annual Mini Maker Faire.
