*^ Denver Grows! (3rd-5th grade):

How did Denver become Denver? How long was Colorado a territory before it became a state? Who lived here before American settlers arrived? Learn the answers to these and many other questions as students travel through time in a choose-your-own-adventure style program as Denver grows from a mining town to a great urban center.

* Exploration and Survival (4th-6th):

Examine history from the point of view of the people who explored and survived in the early years of our state. Using primary and secondary sources, students will explore the lives of miners, indigenous peoples, fur trappers, and pioneers to gain a greater understanding of what life was like in early Colorado.

^ Lego City (2nd-6th grade):

Build your own cities both past and present while becoming a historic preservationist. Learn about saving historic structures, the evolution of a city, and the importance of historic preservation in our most popular program! [Pre-program activity is required before live program.] This program can only be done once in-person learning has resumed.

*^ Molly the Activist (3rd-6th grade):

Margaret “Molly” Brown was involved in everything from politics and reform efforts to women’s suffrage. Learn about several of the causes she was involved in to help all Coloradans and how to engage in your community today.

*^ Science of Titanic (3rd-5th grade):

How did a ship that was built to be “unsinkable” sink? In this program, students will learn about the scientific processes behind the building and sailing of the Titanic, how the Titanic was discovered 12,460 feet down, and will discuss what should be done with the wreck of the Titanic today.

*^ Soldiers in Petticoats (3rd-6th grade):

In 2020, the United States marked the centennial anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment which granted most women the right to vote. In this program, learn about the Suffrage movement in Colorado and the United States, and analyze primary sources to draw conclusions about how the public felt about women’s suffrage.

* Women in Colorado: From Pioneers to Engineers (3rd-5th grade)

Did you know that Elitch Gardens was originally a zoo? Or that a female engineer working on the Eisenhower Tunnel opened up new job opportunities previously denied to women? Join us as we discover the impact women had on Colorado history…from pioneers to engineers!

Different Worlds of the Titanic: (3rd-5th):

Who were the people aboard the Titanic? What can the objects and documents they left behind tell us about their worlds? In this interactive program, students will become someone who sailed on the Titanic and will compare and contrast their experiences on and off the ship with the lives of other passengers and crew.

Quest for Gold! (3rd-5th):

What was life like for Colorado miners? What can primary sources tell us about mining camps and towns? Students will learn about the different types of mining while exploring primary and secondary sources to develop an understanding of what life was like for the people who lived and worked in and around Colorado’s early mining industry.

Where in the World is Margaret Brown? (3rd-5th grade):

How did Margaret Brown travel? How long did it take her to get there? This interactive student program takes you across the world, as we try and figure out where and how Margaret traveled, how those technologies, and the world she lived in, changed over time, and what the societal motivations were for anyone traveling during this time period-all while letting primary and secondary sources be our guide!
