Lake Area Reading Council (LARC) and the D95 Curriculum Office Presents
STEM Read with NIU Gillian King-Cargile
Join us to experience interactive lessons, share ideas, and come away with free resources to engage young learners with STEM and the arts (STEAM).
Gillian King-Cargile is director of Northern Illinois University’s STEM Read program (stemread.com), which introduces young readers to the science, technology, engineering, and math concepts behind popular fiction. To do this, STEM Read creates free online lesson plans, interactive games, videos, collaborative writing prompts, and live events that bring science and stories to life. She is also the author of The Stuffed Bunny Science Adventure Series. These picture books tell fun, fast-paced stories that incorporate STEM concepts aligned with Next Generation Science Standards for Kindergarten through second grade.
