As promised, Cornerstones of Science has new online resources available including a new way to purchase library telescopes, find citizen science opportunities, and find science presenters to come to your library.
Citizen Science Projects- Go to the bottom of the Cornerstones of Science home page at “Find A Project!” This is a searchable database of actual citizen science opportunities that you and your family can contribute to thanks to SciStarter.Click here and scroll down to the bottom of the page.
Telescope Purchasing- Starting at the end of April, look for our new online Store for purchasing your next library telescope! Also available are FAQ’s, customizable forms, and other telescope updates. Look for the “Store” tab along top banner of the website toward the end of April.
Science Provider Network- In collaboration with Colby College, the Cornerstones of Science Science Provider Network will be populated soon with scientists from in and around the Waterville area. We will be working with others in the near future to continue building the database for presenters all around Maine. Cornerstones encourages you to add your library to the database and to have scientists in your area also sign up with their information and preferences for presenting. Keep a look out for this beginning in May!
