This program is a three-part series for kids ages 6 through 11. Kids will use historic photos from the Charles E. Frohman Collection at the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums to gain firsthand knowledge in history through STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) initiatives. Kids can register for one or all three programs. During this month’s session, Students will learn about buoyancy, flotation, displacement and other principles of physics and engineering by building different types of boats with a variety of materials. Using the Frohman Collection photographs, drawings and documents, students will learn about the Great Lakes commercial shipping industry, as well as the passenger vessels that occupied the area during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. There are 10 spots for the in-person program and 10 take-home kits available. Both are free, but registration is required for both. To register, contact Curator of Manuscripts Julie Mayle at 419-332-2081, ext. 239, or [email protected]The title sponsor is ABC INOAC.
