Children's & Youth Services | Jump Start
Jump Start 2014 is coming to a location near you!
Get ready to FIZZ, BOOM, and READ for your summer reading program by attending one of seven Jump Start workshops. New this year: workshops will be hosted and lead by local librarians! Each library will receive one kit of sample activities that will be demonstrated by your workshop leader. You are also encouraged to bring a sample activity of your own to show at your workshop (you do not need to bring materials for everyone).
Each morning workshop will be from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m. local time.
Five of the workshops will also have optional afternoon programs from the South Dakota Discovery Center focusing on STEM concepts in children's programming. Each library that attends one of the afternoon workshops will also receive a GEMS (Great Explorations in Math & Science) guide of activities. The afternoon workshops will be from 1 - 3:30 p.m. local time.
If you would like to attend a Jump Start workshop that does not have an afternoon option, you may choose to also register to attend an afternoon workshop at another location.
