‘Hands-On History’ Program to Teach Public about Water Power
Saturday, Nov. 11, 1 to 4 p.m.
The Tsongas Industrial History Center – a partnership between UMass Lowell’s College of Education and Lowell National Historical Park that educates thousands of schoolchildren and teachers annually about the American Industrial Revolution – has launched “Hands-On History,” a free series for the public that explores the impact of the era. In the upcoming program, “Waterpower Lab,” participants will build a replica of a canal system and experiment with water wheels to learn how water produces energy. Ideal for families with young children, programs in the series will be held the second Saturday of each month through the end of the school year. Members of the public who would like more information should visit www.nps.gov/Lowell. At the Tsongas Industrial History Center, Lowell National Historical Park, Boott Cotton Mills Museum, 115 John St., Lowell.
