Children (and others, especially families) experience some of these for the very first time by visiting Rosita's ultimate source for information: the library.

Among many classroom uses, teachers can present the fun story as a bi- or tri-lingual playlet. Enrichment material includes a compilation of the programs, activities, crafts, song parodies, celebrations, and bibliographies devised by the children's librarians who brought READiscover New Mexico to life in public libraries throughout the state. Also featured are riddles, New Mexico trivia, relevant websites, an extensive booklist, several recipes for Biscochitos, instructions for making Star-O-Litos, and a large collection of reproducible artwork.

kids now, but I am looking to expand the band and I think your event might
be a good place to promote our group.
I teach beginning, intermediate, and advanced band to kids ages 9-19.
Currently we meet at my church at San Mateo and Indian School, but I am
trying to find a rehearsal space in Rio Rancho starting this fall for those
who don't want to drive across town.

516 ARTS is a non-profit arts venue exhibiting local, national, and

• Opportunities for high school students to earn high school credit for doing internships in the design and tech area (costumes, scenery, lighting, sound) and crewing or assistant stage managing for one of our productions.

• A two-week summer intensive course for middle and high school students called The Summer Academy. Classes meet from 9:00 a.m.-5:00 p.m. and culminate in a showcase performance for friends and family.
• The annual school touring show. Each spring, the department produces and tours a one-act play for local elementary schools. These are often written by students in our MFA Dramatic Writing program. This show is available for booking from February through May. Information about the show is usually available by the preceding December.

11. Rio Grande Early Music
I am a builder / performer / teacher of recorders and other early wind instruments. I also do programs on the instruments themselves (I've guest lectured on this at Texas A &M University, where I bring about 50 different Renaissance and baroque instruments), music of different periods, and the physics of music.
I teach recorder and other early instruments privately and in groups. I can also teach an assortment of modern instruments (especially trumpet / cornet, on which I majored in college, and trombone), as well as coach ensembles of modern instruments or period ones, or mixes.
I can also do lecture / demos on instruments and historical issues tied to early performance, or lecture / hands-on on things like basic musical accoustics and physics.
Also, he will have available his book "Writers Guide to Everyday Life in Colonial America" is the result of years working in eighteenth-century living history museums. Written not just for writers, but as an introductory text for training museum staff and for social history courses, the book covers the basic concepts of American social history from 1607 through 1783. Other books cover each subject area in more detail, but none other provides these basic concepts which tie the details together.

20. Fractal Foundation
The Mission of the Fractal Foundation
We use the beauty of fractals to educate and inspire people about mathematics, art, science, nature and the lessons of chaos theory.
We believe that understanding the Principles of Chaos Theory - which are so beautifully illustrated by fractals - is essential to harmonious and sustainable living. No longer is it safe to assume that the cultural, economic and ecological systems in which we live are discrete, linear, disconnected. Rather, we must begin teaching ourselves and our children that the world is a non-linear, unpredictable, interconnected complex system. This radical new paradigm, only recently realized in the new science of Chaos Theory, is still virtually absent from conventional education.
The Fractal Foundation seeks to bring these new ways of thinking into the mainstream.

23. Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum
In 1978, Albuquerque balloonists Ben Abruzzo and Maxie Anderson, along with partner Larry Newman, made history when they completed the first non-stop crossing of the Atlantic Ocean by gas balloon.
Now, a museum named in their honor is making history here in Albuquerque. The $12 million Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum building dominates the skyline just southeast of Balloon Fiesta Park.
The Anderson-Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum is the world's premiere facility dedicated to the art, culture, science, history, sport and spectacle of ballooning. It features one of the finest collections of ballooning equipment and memorabilia in the world. It officially opened its doors to the public on October 1st, 2005.
The dream of building a museum to celebrate the art and science of ballooning began in the mid 1980s. The Maxie Anderson family felt that creating a museum would be a fitting way to honor the senior Anderson, who died in a balloon accident in Europe in 1983. After Ben Abruzzo's 1985 death in an airplane accident, it was decided the museum should honor Abruzzo as well.
24. New Mexico State University's 4- H Program

The life-skills learned in 4-H enable youth to become productive, well-informed, self-reliant responsible adults.
