Thought some science or geography teachers might be brought into the AM
fold with a few goodies from the collections! Glad you found a way to
spread the word.....
About History Day,
We are doing a Feature Presentation on the theme this year - Science,
Technology, and Invention. It won't be up until the first of Oct.
However, I can pull together some of the resources we are using and make a
handout and send it to you as an attachment. Also, fortuitously, today
we'll be meeting with some other cultural institutions on the Mall
(Archives, etc.) and I'll find out what they are doing and when it will
come out. We want to link to each other for this year's theme.
Brochures are no problem, just remember that the brochure is out of date -
we've added more collections - and at the end of Sept, we'll add some more.
We'll have a new poster for NCSS, but not anything sooner. I'll scrounge.
