Navigating By The Stars (Virtual, Gr 4+, Teens, Adults)

Tuesday, May 17, 2022  06:00pm  07:00pm


Have you ever wondered how ancient people told time? Or traveled from point A to point B without a smartphone or compass? How slaves made it over the Underground Railroad to freedom? How sailors used to travel to far away countries over the seven seas? Learn about Nathaniel Bowditch, the father of modern navigation and how he taught illiterate men to calculate from and follow the stars. Learn which constellations matter most in the northern and southern hemispheres. Best of all, take home a star map and learn how to participate in orienteering and other activities in your own neighborhood. For Grades 4+, Teens and Adults.
