Frohman Summer Series: Hands-on History
Weds., June 15, 2022 • 10 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Hayes Presidential Library & Museums, Fremont
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 speed, strength, gravity and other principles of physics and engineering by building a roller coaster using a variety of materials. From 1892 to today, coasters have been a top attraction of Cedar Point amusement park generation after generation. Using the Charles E. Frohman Collection photographs from Hayes Presidential’s collections, drawings and documents, students will analyze and build models of 19th and 20th-century coasters, comparing them to today’s coasters. 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. This session is sponsored by Sierra Lobo.
