Dear colleagues in education, we are writing to invite you to be involved in Galileo’s World over the next two years by bringing students through an activity-based tour of the Galileo’s World exhibition at the OU Library, or by giving us feedback on the educational resources we are creating based on the exhibit materials. Prominent subject areas include astronomy, physics, mathematics, computer science, engineering and the life sciences, and others, and we emphasize the connections between them, through cross-cutting concepts that connect science with the fine arts, music, literature and other humanities.
The OU-Tulsa Schusterman Library hosted a free family-friendly celebration for the opening of the Galileo's World exhibit, "The Scientific Revolution." Among the events involved were the following:
- Skygazing with a selection of telescopes provided by members of the Bartlesville Astronomical Society.
- Weather prediction with Steve Piltz, Meteorologist-in-Charge at the National Weather Service of Tulsa.
- Storytelling with Fran Stalling's illumination of the origins of the universe and celestial bodies.
