Does anyone know of y2k materials that are designed specifically for kids or college students?
I am part of a new project to help collect and distribute youth oriented y2k awareness materials to kids, educators, youth organizations and anyone interested in doing workshops for kids. We don't have time to develop much in the way of new materials (although if anyone wanted to take this on we would certainly incorporate them into our package) so we want to make sure we know of everything that's out there.
(If you might be interested in receiving one of these workshop material packages please contact me)
Right now we are thinking of a one page sheet with the best web resources, the y2k connections game, a y2k video (most likely Lois Saboe's, although I am talking with a few people making youth oriented videos but they are not done yet) and other materials like the utne reader for the educator to use in their program development.
What do others recommend?
Web sources I might not know of? Some of the best I have seen are:
If you are interested in being a part of this project please contact me. We will be having a meeting FTF on May 12th in Washington, DC but there are many other ways to be involved.
