Looking for something to do with your kids for Martin Luther King Day? Join us for fun learning and games, as we explore the accomplishments and successes of some of the most incredible women in history.
This new and exciting program explores women of African American descent who made their mark on US History. These innovative women achieved success in the fields of science, business and the arts, including mathematicians, inventors, aviators, environmentalists, sculptors, and entrepreneurs. These courageous women broke down social barriers and permanently changed the course of history through their strength, effort, and determination.
Learn about Marie Van Brittan Brown, credited with inventing the first closed-circuit television security system, and Dr. Gladys West, who is recognized for her contributions to the mathematical modeling of the shape of the earth. This soon led to the creation of the first Global Positioning System, more commonly known as the GPS.
Children ages 7 -12 will play fun, interactive math games, learn how GPS and geocaching works, make a small model plane, sculpt with clay and much more. Find out about these unsung heroes who made a difference and changed a nation. Hear their stories as we travel through time and learn about their incredible journeys. Snacks and refreshments will also be provided at noontime.
Reservations are required for all programs. For pre-reservations and more information, please call (716) 434-7433 or contact us at email@example.com
