Today, education staff went to the City of El Centro's Summer Camp program with our History on the Go! program. We saw 180 students, ranging from toddlers to preteens. We were thrilled to get to work with so many students, at such a range of ages. We taught them how to make pots the same way the native people of the Imperial Valley made pots for the last 1000 years. It was good to see so many children connect with the history of their homes, and smile while doing it.
