I am forwarding an email from the U of I Extension that should be helpful
for teachers.  I have worked with U of I Extension my entire life, through
4-H opportunities and as a HS teacher/librarian. The programs are always
top notch. Hope this is helpful for some of you.

Subject: U of I Extension announces Fall 2020 Teacher Tuesdays event

This year, the virtual and hybrid learning models adopted by many schools,
libraries, and youth organizations have caused educators to search for new
ways to engage youth in the learning process. The Fall 2020 sessions for
Teacher Tuesday will help! Classroom teachers and out-of-school time
educators can join the virtual networking events designed to connect
educators and their students with local science, technology, engineering,
arts, and math (STEAM) resources. Each event will provide participants with
the opportunity to chat with other teachers, as well as professionals in
STEAM fields.

Join us for virtual networking events designed to connect teachers and
their classrooms with local STEAM resources. At each event, you will have
the opportunity to chat with other teachers and professionals in STEAM
fields to learn about resources and activities for your classroom.
