History Adventures – Olympic Heroes

July 17, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

- Free

The Summer Olympics have come a year early at AAMI! For this History Adventure, kids will learn about Olympic heroes like Thomas Hill, Wilma Rudolph, and Jesse Owens, and participate in several Olympic-style events outside. In the case of inclement weather, an indoor program about Iowa’s most successful black engineer, Archie Alexander, will take place. Suggested for ages 4-12.

About the Series:

Last year, the AAMI rolled out its inaugural Children’s Summer Series, with regular programming aimed at teaching our youth about African American history through fun activities. This year’s summer program, History Adventures, will give children the same opportunity to have fun engaging with history. The program will run every other Wednesday in June and July.
