Engaging Kids with the Past: Developing Nubia: Land of the Bow
How do children and families learn in museums? How can a museum create engaging, meaningful programming to serve young audiences? Join Calgary Haines-Trautman, Oriental Institute Youth and Family Program coordinator, for a hands-on look at family program development. Using the OI’s newest family program, Nubia: Land of the Bow, as a case study, this talk will cover the steps of program development from the initial idea through research, creating materials and activities, and running the program. Attendees will have a chance to take part in program activities in this interactive gallery talk.
