Time Machine Workshops: Build Your Own Time Capsule

Thursday, Oct. 29, 1–2 p.m. via Zoom

Presenters: Mimi Herman, Kennedy Center Teaching Artist, 2017 Piedmont Laureate; Nancy Pennington, Youth and Family Programs Coordinator, North Carolina Museum of History

Years from now, no one will quite understand what we’ve experienced during this time period. So, today, let’s create time capsules—containers filled with present-day things, like photos, drawings, and letters—to be opened in the future. What will you put in your time capsule to remember your life right now?

This virtual weekly series for individual children and families is designed to help ages 8 and up learn history through activities.
