Free community day at SpectrUM museum
Offered once per month, spectrUM's free days help ensure that all children in the Missoula (MT) community can experience hands-on enrichment and interact with career and higher education role models. Role models from all academic disciplines are invited to share a hands-on activity in the museum. On June 24th, 2016, with the support from "We Are Montana in the Classroom", I organized a language corner and invited faculty from Linguistics and Spanish with whom I organized games and activities that let children experience language (vowel sounds, Greek letters) and use language creatively (storytelling). Photos of the event are shown below.
Penn State Arts Festival with the Center for Language Science and Bilingualism Matters
In July 2015 I help execute the Penn State Arts Festival. Children learned about languages in the world and made masks that represented the countries where those languages are spoken.
