What are some reasons for preserving an old building? Students will ponder this question as we examine both old and new architectural features of the historic Champlain Mill. We will discuss how and why the building has changed uses. Students will also have an opportunity to design how the Champlain Mill might look in the future.

Machines in Motion: Gearing Up!

Ages 10-13, $12 per student

Gears are everywhere, but have you ever thought about how they work? In this workshop, students will be introduced to different types of gears and gear ratios. We’ll search for examples as we closely examine the textile machines in our exhibit. Students will then apply their new knowledge to design and build their own gear trains.

Pre-registration & Pre-payment required. Email: info@themillmuseum.org or call: 802-355-9937. You will receive a confirmation email along with payment information.
