Full STEAM Ahead: Transversing the West | Railroads
The development and invention of the railroad were one of the most important technological movements in human history. It allowed for rapid travel and delivery of materials and goods across the country. This month, families will put on their railroad engineer hats as they work together to create a railroad map involving numerous engineering challenges and learn about the development of the U.S. Railroad System.
Families and visitors of all ages are invited to learn about the American West in the Briscoe’s new education series, “Full STEAM Ahead”. Learners of all ages will work together and learn about the American West by engaging in hands-on, STEAM learning experiences. Sharing the American West through STEAM – Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics – each of the activities ties back to the Briscoe’s art and artifacts, bringing the West to life in a new way. From transportation and weather to animals, astronomy and engineering, each program explores an aspect of life in the West to engage and inspire learning.
