Buffalo Gals Luncheon has been canceled

11:45 a.m. – 1 p.m.
Kuyper Dining Pavilion

Join us at our Fall Buffalo Gals Luncheon for a delicious lunch and a talk by Megan Smith, K-12 Curriculum and Digital Learning Specialist at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, as she takes you on a journey, Flashback to the Future. Embrace your inner 4th grader on a quick virtual adventure through the Draper Natural History Museum. She might even ask you to howl like a pack a wolves! Megan will then lead you through her own personal journey, as the interpretive education department at the Center has embraced future forward planning sprinkled with a whole lot of passion in developing successful digital experiences. This future forward planning continues to help drive the education initiatives that Megan and the education team are working on during the current Covid-19 pandemic. Please join Megan for a fun and interactive program that we hope might help you feel like a kid again!

About Megan: Megan Smith started her journey at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West 14 years ago this fall. As the K-12 Curriculum and Digital Learning Specialist, Megan strives to look to the future in her planning for all kindergarten through 12th grade student and teacher audiences. She has a diverse background that allows her to bring multiple perspectives to all she does. Megan holds both undergraduate and graduate degrees in science. However, her over 20 year career has been in both informal interpretive education and educational publishing.

 When Megan first moved to Cody 15 years ago, she started working as freelance writer for non-fiction K-12 children’s books, and continues this endeavor today, when she has time. She is an award-winning author of children’s non-fiction books. These books include leveled readers, Big Books for the classroom, and museum publications. Megan has also written K-12 science, social studies, and reading textbooks and digital curriculum modules for major publishing companies. She recently published The Sweet Mango Tree for Heineman, and was part of the writing team that contributed to the National Geographic Education Resources Library, which just recently won a Webby for People’s Voice website category for Best Writing (Editorial).
