STEAM Into Native Cultures: Drop In Sessions
November 20 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Sunday, repeating until November 27, 2022
Celebrate Indigenous Heritage Month and STEAM Month at the same time! Come to Montpelier House Museum to learn how Indigenous cultures combine math and fractions with stories and life lessons.
4-8 year olds will create paper medicine wheels by playing with parts of a whole (aka fractions), and learn about this symbol used by many Native American cultures to honor nature, seasons and life itself.
Older kids (ages 9-15) will learn about the math incorporated in the Lakota Moon calendar, depicted on a turtle’s shell, and the cultural symbolism of turtles in many Native American cultures. They will also craft their own turtle to take home.
No reservations necessary. $2 per child, adults free. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
