On Friday, October 19, 2018, #UASAtoms traveled back in time to the Civil War era at The Farmer's Museum in Cooperstown, NY. According to the museum's mission, "The Farmers’ Museum is devoted to preserving America’s rural heritage through interactive exhibits, living history programs, and educational workshops that depict farming and rural life."
Our scholars participated in the 19th century life workshop and had a chance to roll up their sleeves and get their hands with history, art, math, and science in a fun way by training as a Blacksmith's Apprentice. This experience directly reflects the historical unit our #UASAtoms are learning about in their classes at the moment. These hands-on lessons are just one of the ways we are building success one ATOM at a time.
