Stas’ Ziolkowski will tell a story to begin this program. Stas’ first told stories about scientists and mathematicians as a young teacher. Storytelling became a special way of communicating knowledge, as well as values and encouragement! In time Stas’ combined his love of teaching, theater, and storytelling and now tells legends, fairy tales, historical, and personal stories.
