Increasing Access: Transforming Physical Archive Inventory into Online Learning Resources
Wednesday, December 7, 2022
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. (Pacific Standard Time)
This webinar is a step-by-step exploration of Beckman Foundation’s “Let’s Learn Science” online learning resources project, developed for middle school students. The six-month project utilized historical documents and images from the institution’s archive in conjunction with objects from its small museum exhibit to highlight the contributions of 20th century scientific instrumentation pioneer, Dr. Arnold O. Beckman. The aims of the project were to generate awareness of grade-specific science concepts and spark interest in future science careers by increasing accessibility to archive and museum collections and widening the audience for the materials. The deliverables of the project included a range of resources in both English and Spanish that could be retrieved online by public, private, and home school students and teachers.
The cost is $10 for SCA members; $5 for student members; $20 for non-members; and $5 for unemployed or precariously employed individuals.
Registration is open until December 6. Online payment is required.
