Event Description

Free. This program is a three-part series for kids ages 6 through 11. They will use photos from the Charles E. Frohman Collection at the Hayes Presidential Library & Museums to gain firsthand knowledge in history through science, technology, engineering and math initiatives. During the Lake Erie session, students will use Frohman historic photographs and documents to learn about lake activities such as ice harvesting and fishing.  They will then compare firsthand Lake Erie’s current condition and its plant and aquatic life to that of the early 20th century.  Using water brought from Lake Erie, students will learn about pollution, how to grow algae, and study its negative effects on the lake when its growth reaches dangerous levels.
 Registration is limited to 10 kids per session. Kids can register for one, two or all three of the sessions in this series. Sessions are June 20, July 18 and Aug. 15. Registration is required. Register by calling Nan Card or Julie Mayle at 419-332-2081, ext. 239, or email them at [email protected] or [email protected]
