Los Alamos History Museum News:
Time Travelers Children’s Program from the Los Alamos History Museum Registration is open for two sessions of Time Travelers, a free after-school, drop-off program Wednesdays from the Los Alamos History Museum.
Time Travelers will set students on an adventure of exploration, investigating our 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 will meet 1:15–3 p.m. in Fuller Lodge.
There are two sessions this fall Oct. 24 and Nov. 28. Both sessions are pay-what-you-like, and pre-registration is required. These sessions are limited to 10 students, with a minimum size of 5 students.
In the October program, What Did Scouts Do?, students will learn about the history of Scouting for boys and girls, particularly the history of Boy Scouting in Los Alamos. We will visit the current temporary exhibit in the History Museum, Be Prepared: A Century of Boy Scouting in Los Alamos.
In the November program, Who Was a Computer?, students will learn about the history of computing and women who worked as computers in Los Alamos for the Manhattan Project. We will visit the Manhattan Project gallery in the museum as part of the program.
