Science Experiment Workshop for Hispanic Parents

    Thursday, February 22, 2007


    Leon County Public Library

    Presented by Maria Mena, Youth Services Coordinator



    This year, Ms Mena graciously agreed again to conduct her science experiment workshop for Hispanic parents. This time we conducted the workshop at the downtown branch of the Leon County Public Library. Seven families attended this workshop. I was also glad to see Barbara Stansell attending this workshop. She is the district ESOL coordinator for Leon County Schools. After Ms Mena's powerpoint presentation on how to help your child conduct a science experiment for the Science Fair, she demonstrated a variety of resources to help families do research on the internet or in the community. Afterwards, she gave a general tour of the library where Spanish-language materials are available.

    I would like to thank the following parents who attended this workshop:

    Ms Paz, Ms Portillo, Ms Sanchez, Ms Aldaz, Mr and Mrs Martinez, Mr Iglesias and Mr Morales
