School’s Out, Museums are IN for Teens: Engineering the Everglades
August 4 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Our teen program, taking place in July and the first week of August, is perfect for your teen who enjoys one-of-a-kind, enriching experiences! Each program incorporates a historic subject and STEM principles, creating a well-rounded and unique lesson about different parts of our region’s history! The subjects will vary as the teen program rotates through each of our 5 museums. RSVP (using the form below) is encouraged to ensure there are enough supplies for all teen participants. Parents do not have to be present, but a signature on a sign-in and sign-out sheet will be required if the teen participant is dropped off.
Engineering the Everglades
Museum of the Everglades | August 4 | 1 pm – 3 pm
STEM, nature, and history collide in this program on how the Tamiami Trail was built. We’ll learn about the engineering behind how they built a road through a swamp, the mechanics of the world’s only walking dredge, and the engineering that people are doing today to restore the health of the Everglades.
