STEAM Into Native Cultures: Drop In Sessions

November 27 @ 11:00 am - 3:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 11:00 am on Sunday, repeating until November 27, 2022

$2

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.
