Los Alamos History Museum News:
There are still a few spots open for the Nov. 28 session of Time Travelers, a free after-school, drop-off program from the Los Alamos History Museum.
Time Travelers sets students on an adventure of exploration, investigating local history through artifacts in the Los Alamos History Museum and hands-on activities. The program is for students in 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades and meets 1:15–3 p.m. in Fuller Lodge.
Time Travelers is limited to 10 students, and registration will end when the limit is reached. The program is pay-what-you-like, and registration is required.
In the November program, Who Was a Computer?, participants will learn about the history of computing and the women who worked as computers in Los Alamos during the Manhattan Project. Students will visit the Manhattan Project gallery in the museum as part of the program. Afterward, back in Fuller Lodge, students will use a desk calculator like those used by computers during the Project.
