From March 17, 10am California time, the Petersen Automotive Museum will be holding twice-daily lectures and activities for students looking for additional learning as a result of school closures.
We’re not students, but even we’re interested, because Thursday’s 10am slot is Storytime featuring ‘Go, Dog, Go!’ by P.D. Eastman, where “students will read the beloved tale about dogs and their cars.” Sign us up immediately!
In all seriousness, it’s a great way of keeping kids entertained during the current global COVID-19 pandemic. The 10am lectures and 1pm ‘hands-on activity’ sessions for livestreaming will take place at 1am and 4am in the Philippines, respectively, but you can find and replay them whenever you want. Also, building and coloring worksheets are free to download anytime.
There’ll be things like understanding force and motion, designing your own balloon car, learning about the history of the car, creating your own licence plates, learning about the car-design process, and actually doing your own.
“The Petersen Automotive Museum offers students an opportunity to gain an education during school closure and in between their digital course loads,” explains Terry L. Karges, the museum’s executive director.
