Tools for Virtual Programming
Join us for a panel discussion with three different approaches to online programming — there's something for everyone! The L.C. Bates Museum will share their Nature Nuggets videos and activity kits; the Maine State Museum will discuss creating educational presentations in your space; and Spirits Alive will explain their approach to hosting live active tours.
The presenters will take questions at the end.
This event will be recorded and the recording will be shared with all registrants, regardless of whether or not they attended.
