Summer Events for Kids: Collections Power

Gary Waddingham will bring to light the value of “collecting” as a hobby. He will show some of his collection of ancient coins, talk a little about it, and then address questions of why one might collect coins (or other things) as a hobby. How does “collecting” relate to STEAM? The answer is, almost all of science begins with collection, description, and classification. A hobby such as developing a serious collection gives a child experience in observation and systematic thinking.

The event is free and open to the public.
