Full STEAM Ahead: Wild West Town
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.
Full STEAM Ahead kicks off with a day of building on Saturday, Jan. 15, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. when “This town isn’t big enough for the both of us!” gets literal as visitors are challenged to design their own Wild West town using cardboard, recyclable material and other found natural material. Transport back to the days where cattle roamed the streets to learn about how the different parts of a town that are essential to survival. Upon completion, visitors will bring their pieces together to create one giant town. Full STEAM Ahead is included with general admission and free for museum members.
