Bring it on! Tackling challenges of the past
Cost: $90/class, discounts available
Length: 90 minutes
Size: Up to 35 students
Tackle the same challenges people in Boulder’s past overcame to create the town we have today. How can you reuse items in your covered wagon to make pioneer toys? How can you put every part of the bison to use? What sort of tool could we create to identify habitable planets? A combination of experiments, activities and projects will give students a deep understanding of the topic they took on. Then create a comic strip following the story of someone from Boulder’s past who really faced that challenge.
