Free Monthly Family Program: Sensing History

May 6, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm


Can you show someone a sound? Can you “see” objects without using your eyes? Explore how senses work at Free First Saturday at the Connecticut Historical Society this month at Family Program: Sensing History. Try out activities that investigate all the ways we see, hear, and feel the world around us. Try to guess the items in a mystery box using only your sense of touch, test out all the different ways sound travels, and create a sensory portrait of yourself or your favorite things that you can see and touch.
This program is free and open to the public, and great for ages 4 and up.
Please note that this program will be presented with American Sign Language (ASL) interpretation. In order to best accommodate our visitors, please email Corinne Swanson at corinne_swanson@chs.org if you need this accommodation. This program is presented in conjunction with our exhibit Language, Culture, Community: 200 Years of Impact by the American School for the Deaf.
For more information, call (860) 236-5621 x222 or email corinne_swanson@chs.org. Thanks to Berkshire Bank for their support of this program.
