As someone who really likes working with kids and knows how exciting and challenging it can be to present STEAM programs, I just found out about a great resource to share. If you’re someone who works with kids (librarian, educator, community center staff, etc.), or if you know someone who is, National Geographic has launched a new online community – GeoEducators – to help you present awesome lessons/programs that make learning exciting.
Crowdsourcing is its key facet…connect with others, share ideas, and work together to create great programs.

You can join the GeoEducator Community, but understand that it requires an Edmodo account, which you can only get if you’re a parent, student, or teacher.* But even if you can’t go that route, you can find great K-12 Teaching Resources Here: http://education.nationalgeographic.com/education/teaching-resources/ie/?ar_a=2&force_AR=True
* I will be asking whether certified librarians are allowed to register.
