Education PLC Meet-Up: Youth Media & "Engaging the Middle". Wednesday, April 24 at 1PM ET. NETA Webinar.

As public media stations many of our programs and efforts focus on young children as well as adults interested in lifelong learning. But how do stations best engage "the missing middle"? Join the Education PLC for a discussion about youth media and other efforts focused on serving tweens and teens in our communities. We'll hear from several stations about the work they're doing in these areas and then open up the meeting for additional sharing and conversation. Bring a question to ask and an idea to share to get the most out of this informal discussion session.

Join GBH and NETA to learn all about a new community engagement initiative called Playtime with the Wombats!. This initiative seeks to engage families with young children in active play around computation thinking (CT). The initiative is comprised of two components.
