May 25th Geek Pride Day

May 25th Geek Pride Day
Originally uploaded by Pesky Library
Geeks, technology and space: what do they have in common? Today in the library, we’re celebrating Geek Pride Day. Today is also the anniversary of the debut of Star Wars. Of course, if you’re a geek, you already knew that. Geek Pride Day also coincides with the remarkable feat we’re watching today: the unmanned SpaceX Dragon approaching the International Space Station.

In the library we’re always interested in the latest and greatest in technology. As we have been thinking about the prevalence of iPad use in schools, we’ve started brainstorming ways to integrate using the iPad in the library. Recently, we downloaded the Hubble Top 100 app to view the breathtaking images of space the Hubble telescope has captured over the years. Maybe sometime in the near future, we’ll be tracking commercial space flights on the iPad.
