Afterschool Digital Library Project
Afterschool settings provide wonderful places for children to be creative—working together to make their own science toys, explaining how things work, asking questions, and having fun with friends. Itís also a great place for science and math enrichment.
The goal of the Exploratorium Digital Library Afterschool Project is to provide resources for afterschool educators to support science and math enrichment. The resources are drawn from the Exploratorium's Digital Library (www.exploratorium.edu/library), one of the many collections of the National Science Digital Library (nsdl.org).
Educators visiting the site will learn different afterschool activities through digital videos, concept maps, links to science explanations, educator tips, and related activities.

Thanks to CalSAC and their trainee network for invaluable help with outreach and training. They spread the word about the Afterschool Digital Library Project and the National Science Digital Library (NSDL), and taught afterschool program leaders and front-line staff how to take full advantage of these libraries.
