Kids' Lab - All Age Stage

Saturday November 9, 2019 - 11:30 am to 12:00 pm

Ever want to be a podcaster, reporter, or do you cringe when people use the "wrong" words? This is your chance to find out about all those things and more - by asking Mignon Fogarty (aka "Grammar Girl") whatever you want. Kids and teens can find out about her career - like how she became a best-selling author and member of the Podcasting Hall of Fame. Try to stump her with questions about spelling and grammar best practices in the real world, learn about how she finds answers to questions like where did this word come from (etymology online), how popular is this word (corpus research like Google Ngrams and Corpus of Contemporary American Usage), and especially if there are controversies about this word (dictionary and usage guide research).
