Ethiopia Science Stories Book Launch

Add to Calendar 2022-07-15 17:30 2022-07-15 19:00 America/New_York Ethiopia Science Stories Book Launch Lesley students write and illustrate science books for children in Ethiopia.

The Ethiopia Science Story Project, created by Graduate School of Education faculty member Dr. Susan Rauchwerk, is holding a book event at Lawrence Academy in Groton, MA, on Friday, July 15, to launch the publication and distribution of 13 culturally relevant, scientifically accurate books in 10 schools in Ethiopia. 

The books were written and illustrated by Lesley students in Dr. Rauchwerk's science methods course, and are accompanied by a read-aloud guide for family and educators. Each book has been translated in English, Amharic, and a local language (Tambarsa, Kembatisa, or Hadiyisa, languages of the Hadiya and Kembata Tembaro regions, where the books will be distributed). The books will be printed in Ethiopia and will be ready for students when they return to school in the fall.

The event will include food and music.

For more information and to register, email Dr. Rauchwerk: srauchwe@lesley.edu.

Dr. Rauchwerk has worked with several organizations over the years to support access to learning in Ethiopia, including WEEMA, which is responsible for translation and distribution of the books in Ethiopia.

Where: Lawrence Academy, Groton, MA
When: July 15, 5:30 pm
