A fun, hands-on adventure with some of the Cape’s most fascinating organizations!
Students will spend a day with each of the host organizations, exploring the important concept of PROGRESSION and how it influences science, technology, art, music, history – every part of our daily existence.
Monday: Bourne Farm
Bourne Farm is a 1775 historic farm with over 50 acres of natural woodlands, trails, fields and a pond. Students will explore how a seed progresses into a plant, how an egg progresses into a bird, and how nature is constantly changing around us. They will get their hands dirty and their feet wet as they discover the progress of nature in the early summer.
Tuesday: Falmouth Art Center
Students will explore artists who work in progression, designing a series based on their personal interests. Participants will also begin a collaborative piece that we will display at the art center, which will encourage viewer participation as it evolves to completion.
Wednesday: Falmouth Historical Society and Museums on the Green
Students will examine the progress, development, and evolution of the town of Falmouth; its history, businesses, and people that helped grow and shape the town to make it emerge. We will start at its inception in 1688 (and even earlier!), and journey through the present day.
Thursday: Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) Exhibit Center
Focusing on the progression of oceanographic sampling and the dynamic marine environment over time, students will take part in fun hands-on activities held at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute (WHOI) Exhibit Center.
Friday: Cape Conservatory
Students will explore the progression of music, starting with the songs of our most ancient ancestors and progressing through the rock and pop music we enjoy today. Participants will work together to compose their very own original piece of music!
