WINDSOR, Vt. – The American Precision Museum announces its Junior Apprentice program for children ages 8-12. The program runs daily through Oct. 31, 2019. Students pay a one-time admission fee and complete the junior apprentice booklet while exploring the museum during their visit. Each junior apprentice will receive a badge that serves as a Saturday admission pass for the remainder of the season. Junior apprentices join in guided activities in the museum’s Learning Lab each Saturday, including beginning coding, basic robotics, and 3D design and printing.
“Becoming a junior apprentice is a terrific way for young visitors to become familiar with the museum and take advantage of all the STEM learning opportunities we have to offer,” said Scott Davison, director of education. “They’ll receive hands-on experience with everything from building simple machines to programming robots. We have a lot of fun.”
A one-time museum admission applies for participation in the Junior Apprentice Program. An adult must accompany children on each visit.
The American Precision Museum, located in the 1846 Robbins & Lawrence Armory, a National Historic Landmark, traces the beginnings of manufacturing to modern technology through exhibits and interactive programs. Open daily, Memorial Day Weekend through Oct. 31, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The American Precision Museum is proud to be a Blue Star Museum, offering free admission to active duty military and their families.
